Cajun Sautéed Green Beans

Cajun Sauteed Green Beans

“My mom and dad both cooked it, and they learned to cook from their parents. The aroma just kind of brings you back. That’s the smell. That’s home.” Jennifer LaRose, New Orleans.



  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add pork and Cajun or Creole seasoning; cook until brown, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Drain 3 cans of green beans (do not drain 1 can); set aside.
  4. Add onions to the same pan and cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until light brown on edges.
  5. Stir in beans, potatoes and pork. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium, and cook, uncovered, 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
