Garlic Green Beans

Looking for something different to try with your green beans? This technique is simple and delicious, and provides a nice alternative to steamed/boiled beans.

Serves 4


  • 3/4 pounds fresh green beans

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  • Salt


  1. Snap off the tops of the beans.

  2. Melt the butter in a skillet, add the beans, and cook them over a medium to medium-high heat, stirring until they begin to brown.

  3. Lower the heat, cover, and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until the beans reach desired tenderness, stirring occasionally.

  4. Mix in the crushed garlic, sprinkle with salt, and serve immediately.

Recipe adapted from Food 52.
