I LOVE green beans. Like seriously I will snack on them in the middle of the night if I cooked some earlier that day which is exactly what I did when I made a big batch of them on Monday for dinner. The left overs didn’t even last into the next day LOL
This is my tried and true recipe for green beans.
1-2 lbs of green beans, washed and stems trimmed off
1/2 red onion, chopped
4-5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp butter or olive oil (whichever you prefer)
Garlic Salt (to taste)
Warm up a pan and start to melt your butter. After it has melted and is slightly turning brown add in your onions and saute for 1-2 minutes. You don’t want to get them too soft because they will just turn to mush later on.Warm up a pan and start to melt your butter.

Add in the garlic and saute for another 1-2 minutes until the garlic is lightly golden.
Then add in your raw green beans. I prefer my green beans with a slight crunch so I do not cook them before added them into the sauteed onion & garlic.
Cook for approximately 7-10 minutes stirring frequently so the garlic doesn’t burn. The green beans should still have a slight crunch. Sprinkle with a little bit of garlic salt, stir and then pour into a serving bowl and enjoy 😀
Just looking at the pictures is making me salivate. I’m thinking a trip top the grocery store later might be in store to buy more green beans.
