    Sharon123's Note:

    Don't let the simpleness of this recipe fool you, it is so good you'll want to lick the pan. I do! Taught to me by a 96 year old friend, and has become one of my favorite vegetables! I used to think green beans, ho hum, but not with this recipe!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Place olive oil in the bottom of a medium to large saucepan.
    2. 2
      Put green beans in pan, then sprinkle 1 teaspoon salt over the beans.
    3. 3
      Pour in water.
    4. 4
      Bring the pot to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium low, cover partially, and simmer for 45-60 minutes, or until the water is almost completely gone, stirring occasionally.
    5. 5
      This is approximate, so check every so often, you may need to add a little more water to get beans cooked to desired doneness.
    6. 6
      Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
    7. 7
      Note: My sister loves to add Greek seasoning and a few dashes of liquid smoke to this. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

      This is my new found way to cook fresh green beans! Wonderful flavor with just the right amount of texture. Thanks! Made for the "Down on the Farm" Photo Tag 2012.

      Super simple, but oh so good. I did add some Greek seasoning and I am glad I did as it completed the dish. I will definitely make this again.

      This a good recipe technique for green beans. I will make this again, but with less olive oil. I used frozen green beans because that was what I had on hand. My husband, who is not particularly fond of green beans, cleared his plate. I would give this four stars, but because they were frozen, and my husband cleared his plate . . . I have to give it a five.
