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.

I am a true garlic lover, so I was looking forward to trying this recipe. Now, I am looking forward to making this again. I fixed this with a brisket and homemade mac & cheese - what a meal! I did underestimate the time so ended up using canned green beans instead of the fresh ones - canned green beans never tasted so good. I'll make this again with those fresh ones that I have in the fridge. Can't wait! Thanks for posting this one Tgirl!

Not sure why we didn't really care for these as much as other garlic green beans recipes we have tried. The main difference is that the beans are steamed seperately before added to the butter garlic in the pan. We prefer the flavor when they are cooked directly with the garlic.

This is a very flavorful side dish and is easy to prepare. I used canned green beans, drained, and 2 large cloves of garlic, minced, and sauteed it using the olive oil. This was delicious and so easy! Thank you for sharing your recipe TGirl,RN!

A very simple but great dish. I used the butter and after dishing onto plates I topped them with some tomato slices that I had pan fried in a lightly oiled non stick pan with a sprinkle of dried basil, freshly ground black pepper & a little salt. Served with browned sausages & small minted boiled potatoes. Thanks for posting a dish that will be a "keeper' for me :)

These were very good, similar to Country Lady's pan roasted asparagus, which I love. I used the olive oil. The only thing I would've liked would ahve been a bit more guidance on portions. I took a stab at 1 lb of beans feeding 4 & it came out about right, I think.
