Ready In:


  • 12 lb frozen cut green beans
  • 1 12 ounces garlic and herb butter
  • 13 cup chicken stock or 1/3 cup vegetable stock


  • Heat a not stick pan on med-high.
  • Add compound butter and let it melt.
  • When butter just starts to bubble and turn a little brown around the edge, add green beans.
  • Add the stock and cover with a tight fitting lid.
  • Let it cook on high for about 5 min or until steam slows down.
  • Remove lid and cook for an additional 3 to 4 min, while tossing beans n the pan to keep them moving. They will burn if you don’t keep them on the move.
  • Once the liquid has reduced down to next to nothing and the green beans are just a little toasted, serve and enjoy.

    Great recipe! My family loved them, they came out just right. This will become a standby for beans in my house.

    Hubby loved these. I think the dish has great potential. I used low sodium chicken stock, but the green beans were still too salty for me. Next time I'll cut the salt back on the compound butter.

    These are awesome! I used fresh green beans and steamed them in the microwave for about 5 minutes first. I didn't have any compound butter, so just threw the ingredients to your compound butter (butter, garlic, salt, pepper, summer savory) into the skillet at the same time. Although the garlic did brown a little too much (as a result of me trying to cook 4 things at the same time), the whole dish was excellent. After he had eaten his, I asked Dh how he liked them. He looked at the empty spot on his plate and said "What green beans? You didn't give me any!"- a sure compliment!! These are definitely a keeper in our house. Thanks so much for posting!
