People are always raving about my green beans and asking for my recipe. For years I’ve just said there isn’t really a recipe, you just make them. Well, today I’m breaking down and writing the instructions for making the tastiest dang green beans out there. Yes, it is super simple. Yes, it’s just butter, salt, and pepper. But know what? I still never find better! The simplicity let’s the green beans shine through and that is what it is all about.
1 1/2 lbs. fresh green beans, ends trimmed
4 TB. butter
Salt and Pepper
1. Steam the green beans until tender.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in butter and steamed green beans. Season with salt and pepper. Saute for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve hot.
***Why don’t I give you an exact amount of salt and pepper? Because any time you get an actual measurement for salt and pepper in a non-baking dish (baking is actually pretty scientific), it’s just a guess. It’s really based on personal preference. Season to taste.
