sauteed green beans...Yummm!
Prep. and Cook, about 15 to 20 Mins.
Posted by Sandra
½ lb. fresh green beans, trim ends, and cut into 1-1/2” pieces
¼ cup water
1 tablespoon light olive oil
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Place the cut fresh green beans in a microwave-safe bowl with water, cover with a damp paper towel, and par-steam in microwave on high for 5 minutes. Drain, and rinse in a colander under cold water to retain color and to stop the cooking process, and then pat dry (this can be done ahead of time). Place olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, when oil is hot add the par-cooked green beans and spices, and saute for 7 to 10 minutes, just until crisp-tender. – Enjoy!
Tip: I have found that many like fresh green beans cooked longer until tender - not crisp, if so, you may choose to do so and continue sauteing for another 5 minutes.
