Top-ranked recipe named "Sauteed Green Beans with Garlic and Herbs"
Delicious green beans.
"My husband and I really loved this dish. I added a yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced, to the green beens. It added both flavor and color. Next time I will cut down a bit on the thyme, or perhaps add dill instead. This recipe is very adaptable to personal taste and will be a staple at our table! Loved it!"
Combine butter, garlic and thyme in a small bowl and set aside. Heat olive oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until just smoking.
Add beans, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until spotty brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Add water, cover andcook until beans are bright green and crisp, about 2 minutes.
Remove cover, increase heat to high and cook until water evaporates, 30-60 seconds. Add butter mixture and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until beans are crisp-tender, lightly browned and beginning to wrinkle, 1-3 minutes longer.
Transfer beans to a serving bowl, toss with lemon juice and parsley; adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

hunnyb 11 month agoLoved it. Wish I would have found this when I was pregnant, I would crave green beans with a lot of butter. This would have been much healthier. And my daughter is now 1yr and a few months she really like them too she ate several. Thanks for sharing.

jgalla3 1 year agoGreat easy green bean recipe. Can use a hint of parmesan cheese to compliment the sour of the lemon.
cgill7 1 year agoShould have used less butter... had a greasy taste. I will try again.
AnnaMariakl 1 year agoThis recipe is great! I only did 1/2 the butter and twice the lemon though. PS.. it took 30 minutes to cook though!
