The ONLY way to enjoy french beans, in my opinion.
The best green beans ever! Quick and delicious!
Sometimes I make them crispy and others they are steamed/limp. I'll comment on how to make the difference. Crispy tastes more fresh, so if you're not into that business, then go for the limper version!

  • How to cook beans. Amazing Green Beans - Step 1
    Step 1

    Here are the ingredients!
    I buy my beans at Walmart, and everything I know for a fact is available there as well.
    Doesn't matter what brand people.

    Alrighty, so start by adding about this much EVOO to your medium pan.

    Ok, so add your beans. I put them all the same direction and try to make an even layer.
    Then sprinkle a generous dose of the salts atop the beans. Once you make it you get an idea of about how much you prefer. Some people like a lot, others like them more plain. Me? I like a nice dose, so mine look like this!

    Step 4

    IF YOU WANT THEM CRISP: After you add the salts, let it cook for about 5 mins on med-low heat. Now STOP here and eat up for a fresher tasting version.

    IF YOU WANT THEM LIMPIER: After you add the salt, let them cook for a few mins on med-low heat, then, do as the picture shows, and add some water. I add enough so that the bottom of the pan is just about covered. Then I put a lid on top and let the beans simmer for about 5 mins. You don't really need to stir them.

    Whatever method you choose, you'll end up with something similar to this.

Yes, I am definitely a fan! And also, one of the "Onion Salt"s in the ingredients is supposed to say "Garlic Salt".
