I just had to share this with you! I made the most scrumptious, delightfully colorful, and perfectly tender-crisp string beans tonight! See?
Well, you all know I like good food, and use real stuff, not imitations, so here is this sinfully delightful, healthfully delicious, dish.
Sautèd String Beans & Garlic
- 1 lb. fresh string green beans
- 4 large cloves garlic, peeled and pressed (or diced)
- 4 Tblsp. unsalted butter
- whole pepper corns in a grinder
- sea salt to taste
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In a large skillet, preferably cast iron for best results, melt butter over low heat. Once butter has melted, raise the heat to medium-high and add beans and garlic. Stir frequently while sautèing for about 5 minutes, or until slightly tender yet still a bit crisp. Turn off the heat and grind pepper to taste and sprinkle with salt. Serve warm with a tablespoon of freshly grated parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
Serves 4 (or 2 if you are as greedy for these as I am!)
