Green beans are the perfect side dish. They are easy to make and cook in less than 20 minutes. However, boiled or roasted green beans can get a little boring. That's why you should try grilling green beans for a change. Grilling them gives them a char smoky flavor that makes them so irresistible. To make our grilled green beans, we tossed some fresh green beans with olive oil, soy sauce, kosher salt, crushed red pepper flakes, lemon juice, and lemon zest, then grilled them until tender and charred. Serve the grilled green beans with other grilled delights like grilled turkey steak or grilled pork tenderloin or comfort foods like instant pot mac and cheese
