Green Beans with Pecan Brown Butter

READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by Luby Luby Luby

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.
