Panfried Green Beans
Start by trimming the ends from 1 pound of green beans and washing thoroughly. Next, place the green beans in a microwavable dish with a couple tablespoons of water. Cook on high for 3 minutes, drain. In large frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter together. When the oil sizzles when drops of water touch it, add the green beans and stir around to coat. Sprinkle garlic salt to taste. Continue panfrying until green beans are somewhat browned and reach desired doneness.
My idea and your idea of desired doneness may differ, but we really like these green beans somewhat soft from the cooking process. By panfrying, you achieve a delicious nutty flavor too. They are requested quite frequently around here, which is saying a lot considering they are a vegetable.
We enjoyed these a couple of weeks ago when we had an all veggie dinner including the Copycat KFC Coleslaw and Best Sweet Corn on the Cob. Mmmm...all the tastes of summer on one plate! What's your favorite way to eat green beans?
