      I found that one minute was not nearly enough time to cook the beans. I added a little water, covered the skillet and cooked them for about 15 minutes. I then removed the lid and let the water evaporate. I think the recipe might work better if the beans are cooked separately and then added to the pecan-butter mixture.

      I was afraid the beans would burn on without more liquid in the pan, so I steamed them separately at the start of making performingd steps 1-4. Next I added the beans and cooked a minute or so with the nuts & butter. Then I continued on with steps 6-8. The pecans and beans and butter flavors melted into each other very well. A good, easy side dish.
