Green Bean Casserole


Green Bean Casserole

Yield: 10-12 servings


  • 2 lb fresh green beans, trimmed 2” lengths
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 lb sliced baby bella mushrooms
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp Cattleman’s Grill California Tri-tip Seasoning
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1/2 cup parmesan, grated
  • kosher salt, as needed

For the topping:

  • 4 large shallots, sliced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp Cattleman’s Grill California Tri-tip Seasoning
  • vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup panko (coarse breadcrumbs)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan, grated


Prepare the topping: Pour vegetable oil in a Lodge Logic 7 quart dutch oven, about 2” deep. Heat to 350ºF on a side burner. Toss the shallots in the flour and Cattleman’s Grill California Tri-tip Seasoning. Fry the shallots in a couple of batches, for about 1 minute, until crispy and golden. Use a slotted spoon to remove the shallots and place on paper towels; season with salt, to taste. Combine the fried shallots with the panko and 1/4 cup parmesan in a bowl. Toss to combine. Set aside. Discard the oil.

Turn on your side burner to high heat. Cook green beans in boiling salted water in the dutch oven for 3-5 minutes, to desired degree of doneness; drain. Place in cold water to stop the cooking process.

Return the empty dutch oven to the side burner. Over medium heat, melt the butter, then add the mushrooms, onion and Cattleman’s Grill California Tri-tip Seasoning. Cook until the onions are translucent and mushrooms are softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in the flour and garlic and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in the wine and continue to cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in the half and half and cook and stir until sauce is thickened and bubbly. Stir in the parmesan. Remove from heat.

Fold the green beans into onion and mushroom sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning, as needed. Sprinkle the fried shallot topping mixture over the green beans and sauce.

Preheat your gas grill to 400ºF, set up for indirect grilling. Bake the green bean casserole until it’s bubbling and the topping is crispy, about 45 minutes.

    I made this as a side this thanksgiving and it was the best I and my guests claim to have ever eaten. The only thing I did differently was make my own half and half and used some spade L beef seasoning as a substitute for the cattleman’s. This is a legit recipe. I highly recommend if you are working to impress guests.

    Absolutely wonderful recipe – just in time for Thanksgiving 2019! Prepared in Dutch Oven on the stove top and in the oven vice on the grill. I substituted chopped portobello mushrooms and Montreal Steak seasoning and the result was fantastic! I will not wait until November 2020 to cook this side again. Thank you!
