"A simple and tasty side dish when fresh green beans are plentiful. Prep time doesn't include time to prep the beans before steaming."
1 1/2-2 lbs
fresh green beans
( about 1 inch long)
2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons
Prepare green beans by snapping them or cutting them to approx 1 inch in length and rinsing them.
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.
Add all of the rest of the ingredients, seasoning to taste.
