Garlic Green Beans
The best recipes can be the simplest recipes. Here’s proof.
- 3/4 pound fresh green beans
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- Coarse salt
- Snap off the tops of the beans. Melt the butter in a skillet, add the beans, and cook them over a medium to medium-high flame, stirring, until they begin to brown.
- Lower the flame, cover, and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until the beans are the desired tenderness, stirring occasionally.
- Mix in the crushed garlic, sprinkle with salt, and serve immediately.
