Step 1

Fill a 4 quart pot half way with water; add 1 1/2-2 teaspoons salt. Bring water to a boil.

Step 2

Add trimmed green beans to boiling water; cook for 5 minutes, or until the green beans are just tender. If your green beans are fresh and young, they should cook quickly. Cook longer if necessary.

Step 3

When beans are just tender, remove the beans from the the hot water. Place beans into a bowl of iced water to quickly stop the cooking. Return drained beans to the empty pot.

Step 4

While beans are cooking stir together orange marmalade, soy sauce, and hot sauce. Taste and adjust to your taste. If your marmalade is a bit tart, you may want to add a teaspoon or two of sugar. If your soy sauce isn't very salty, you may want to add a little more soy sauce, or a bit of salt. Add more hot sauce if you want the sauce spicier.

Step 5

Over medium heat, quickly heat the beans. Add the marmalade sauce to the cooked green beans and toss to coat.

Step 6

Serve immediately, or at room temperature.

We loved this recipe. I used "no sugar added marmalade" and added 1/2 teaspoon sugar. I followed the ingredients but prepared the beans in a slightly different manner. I steamed the beans, made the sauce and heated it, spooned the sauce over the hot beans when I served them. A do again recipe for sure

Very impressive way to have green beans! And so easy, too. We both were raving about them. As I never found gluten free sriracha sauce, I substituted sambal olek, which gave a great zing to the marmelade! Also I added some salt and omitted the sugar because the marmelade was very sweet. Thanks for sharing this winner, I'll sure make it again! Made for Sweet December Game.

Never would have thought to add marmalade to green beans but it worked and made a pretty presentation. I used whole frozen petite green beans and as my marmalade was very sweet left out the sugar and doubled the Sriracha. Thanks for the post.

WOW! We really enjoyed these delicious green beans. I don't use orange marmalade often, but I'm glad I purchased a large jar. : ) I plan to make these wonderful green beans often. Nancy : )
