- Steam beans in an inch of water, covered, for 5 minutes, or until bright green and crisp-tender. Drain.
- In a skillet, melt butter in oil, add onion and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, or under onions are soft.
- Toss with green beans and season with salt and pepper to taste (I like using coarse Kosher salt).
