fresh green beans, trimmed and snapped in half
salt to taste
This is one of my most favorite ways to make green beans. I like to add a little finely minced onion to the skillet with the garlic as well. I usually double this recipe because my family inhales it.
These were just ok. I used real garlic and more than called for-glad I did. A few pinches of lemon pepper doesn't add substantial flavor, nor were they all that buttery.
Use real garlic -- dry, minced garlic didn't do anything for the green beans.
Everyone in my house thought this was fantastic. I was looking for a green recipe that did not use bacon as we did not have any and this hit the spot!!
I really like this method of green beans!
I have to say I stepped it up by adding chicken bouillon to the water while parboiling the beans, and then using both garlic powder and fresh garlic when sauteeing in the butter. This is a staple in our home.
Delicious! I didn't have any lemon pepper but the dish didn't seem to be the worse for it. A great way to add some veggies into any diet. Next time I think I may add some lemon juice for a little extra flavor.
Cooked our green beans about 7 minutes as we like them a little softer. Guesstimated on the garlic--approximately 4 cloves. Needed a bit extra salt and pepper, but on the whole no complaints.
