directions

  • 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.
  • Enjoy!

    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.
