    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • fresh green beans, with ends trimmed-use amount appropriate for desired servings
    • butter (as a rule, 1 T per 2 servings of beans)
    • fresh garlic (minced/crushed amount varies-but as a rule, I use 1 large clove per 2 servings of beans)
    • olive oil, can be used instead of butter for vegetarian/vegans (or for those watching their waistlines! Use less oil than butter 2 t per 2 servings)


    1. 1
      Steam green beans until tender-crisp.
    2. 2
      Melt butter in pot big enough to hold green beans.
    3. 3
      Add garlic and heat until you can smell the garlic.
    4. 4
      Remove pan from heat and add green beans to pot.
    5. 5
      Coat beans with butter/garlic.
    6. 6
      Serve as a fabulous side dish.

      All I can say is YUM and easy!!! I loved these and I'm not a huge green bean fan. I found that I just kept picking at them even after I was finished eating. The kids wouldn't even try them because, well, they are green and they are beans! Who cares what they think, I thought they were great.

      Superb. I always like fresh green beans, and this one top them all. So easy to prepare, so delicious. I french cut the beans, and steamed with 2 cloves of sliced garlic. I also used olive oil instead of butter. Simple and full of flavor. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
