Sauteed Green Beans

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Rachel

A new twist on plain old green beans! My family calls this my "secret recipe"...but I am willing to share!! These are too good and easy not to!! I started doing it this way so they would have more flavor without the water soaking up the seasoning off the beans...and it is now a frequent request for my "secret recipe green beans"!!!

This is very good, but I think the seasoning nearly got burned. Anyway, I used vegetable oil and fresh green beans. Next time, I will just add the seasoning near the end of cooking.
