    1. 1
      Prepare green beans by snapping them or cutting them to approx 1 inch in length and rinsing them.
    2. 2
      Over a pot of boiling water, steam beans for 15-20 minutes (until just tender with a little"bite" to them; Also, to steam I use a covered colander over a Dutch oven filled 1/4th full with water) Remove steamed beans and turn into a serving bowl.
    3. 3
      Add all of the rest of the ingredients, seasoning to taste.

      Before this recipe, I would have told you I didn't like green beans. But I had never tried them steamed before. I liked these so much I ate all my green beans first!! LOL! I steamed them for 18 minutes. First, I drizzled the teaspoon of EVOO on them and tossed to coat. I then sprinkled about a teaspoon of brown sugar over them and some pepper, again tossing to coat. I learned the brown sugar trick from a restaurant chef and it is incredible. I know I'll be making these again!

      So simple and delicious. I used frozen green beans and steamed them in a steamer basket for about 10 minutes then tossed with butter, seasoned with the salt and pepper. Made for PAC Spring 2012.

      I steamed the beans in a glad steam bag and then added the other ingredients. We all enjoyed these.
