Skillet green beans

Ok, you asked for it. 
There's no recipe but I'll tell you how to make them.


First you need a mess of fresh green beans. Heat 1/2 stick of butter in a large skillet and toss in the green beans.  Cook on medium heat stirring often for about 20 minutes until tender.  Some will brown but that just makes them taste better.  Add a little salt, pepper, and onion powder a few minutes before they are done.

I make skillet new potatoes the exact same way but you have to cut them up small if you want them to cook in the same amount of time.

Olive oil can be used instead of butter but it does tend to pop more.  Besides, everything tastes better in butter!


That's it ~ our favorite way to enjoy summer fresh green beans.

  11. Ooh ~ It's pickin time for green beans at my place too. We eat them like that too. My Mom always cooked green beans with a little cooking oil added, maybe a tablespoon or so and cooked them low and slow; it gave a nice flavor.

  16. New potatoes and green beans is one of my most favorite combinations. I also do garlic and chopped walnuts in olive oil and toss in the green beans. I eat that as a main dish with brown rice, but my hubby considers it a side dish. :) Have a great day. Tammy

  17. Hello, I've just discovered your blog. In so many ways your site reminds me of my parent's ranch in Texas where I grew up. It will be a wonderful place for your boys to grow up. I know that through by brother and my nephew. I love, love, love your house, it is a prefect combination of rural and urban. I designed one of our homes and my husband and I were the general contractor. You get exactly what you want that way.
