|Green Beans |
A guy can only poach salmon so many times in his dishwasher before it becomes yesterday's news. In search of a new culinary adventure for my forthcoming book, "Off The Eaten Path," I decided to test drive a cooking method that's frequently discussed but rarely attempted: cooking on the car engine.
1/2 lb. of green or yellow string beans, trimmed
1 T butter, sliced into three pieces
1 T lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1) Layer all three sheets of aluminum foil on top of each other, and use one piece of the butter to grease the top layer.
2) Place beans on foil, drizzle with lemon juice. Add butter, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and seal foil package.
3) Place on engine and cook for approximately 60 miles, turning once.
