At almost 48 years of age, I finally discovered green beans.
All those years I dreaded going to my maternal grandmothers as I knew we would be snapping, snapping, and still more snapping of green beans from her garden. She would then can a copious amount of beans which meant every dinner we had at her house involved green beans.
Wimpy, mushy, overcooked green beans, no kidding.
I was instantly shamed in to trying something that I had said smelled delicious yet wouldn’t give it a try?? Yeah. That’s what it took. I feel in love with her green beans.
Here’s what you need:
2 pounds of green beans, trimmed and cleaned. Snap the longer ones in half
1/2 onion (any type), finely chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
salt and pepper
tsp of ghee
Melt the ghee in a large skillet and then add the rest of your ingredients. Toss to coat all (or at least most) of the beans and then put a lid on it. Allow to cook for 15 minutes or so over medium low heat.
Remove lid, toss the beans again and taste to see if cooked to your desired crunch. I obviously like MINE crunchy. Once done, remove from pan, add a little more salt and pepper if desired and serve up.
Looking forward to sharing over at some of these GREAT blog parties!!
