Ingredients (6)

  • 3 cups fresh green beans with ends removed
  • 3 Tbsp corn oil
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 cup thin sliced portabella mushroom caps
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup rough diced Aligator Jerky


I have never cooked with alligator meat before, so I could not pass up the opportunity to create a recipe with this savory delicacy.

Salt and pepper to taste


  1. 1Steam the green beans for 3-5 miunutes until just tender.
  2. 2Heat a large fry pan over medium heat and add the oil and one tablespoon of the butter. Once melted saute the sliced mushrooms for a few minutes until just browned.
  3. 3Drain the beans and stir them into the mushrooms.
  4. 4Use a garlic press and squeeze the garlic cloves into the fry pan. Saute with the remaining butter for a few minutes then add the diced alligator jerky.
  5. 5Season with salt and pepper
  6. 6Stir and saute for 1-2 more minutes until heated through. Serve immediately and enjoy!
