this was the way my mother cooked green beans

OK, this was just terrific! I was out of onions and garlic (whoops) so I used 5/8 tsp. of garlic powder and 1 tsp. onion powder. My darling kids each had 2 helpings! of green beans!! I'm sure I'll revisit this one over and over. I suggest using a large saucepan/stockpot - I used a 12" frying pan and had some difficulty stirring.
