Recipe for family meals :

Pickle Dilly Green Beans

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. If you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

Bill says: "My apologies to my friends in the UK for the title. This is an adaptation from my memory of green beans served in a steak house in Omaha Nebraska. The owner's daughter would only tell us that the secret to this sweet sour dish was something that most people throw away".


1 (14 1/2 ounce) can green beans
1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onions
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup pickle juice (liquid from a jar of pickles)
1 teaspoon dried dill
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)

  • Add oil and butter to a large frying pan, heat until melted.
  • Add onion and sauté until nearly transparent.
  • Add green beans, stirring until heated.
  • Add pickle juice and dill, stir to coat, and serve hot.
  • Depending on the pickle juice used, a little sugar might be needed if the dish is too sour for your taste.
