Green Beans


  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and snapped in half
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 pinches lemon pepper
  • Salt to taste


  1. Place green beans into a large skillet and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until beans start to soften, about 5 minutes. Drain water. Add butter to green beans; cook and stir until butter is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Cook and stir garlic with green beans until garlic is tender and fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with lemon pepper and salt.
