Fried Green Beans with Garlic

Still under 30 minutes even if you trim the beans.



  1. Trim green beans if not purchased pre-trimmed.
  2. Heat oil over medium-high heat for about 1 minute in a large fry pan.
  3. Add green beans, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula. Beans will get brown spots in about 4 to 6 minutes.
  4. Add water carefully and have the lid handy. The hot oil will make the water splatter. Cover and cook 2 minutes.
  5. Remove the lid and continue cooking until water evaporates. (About 1 minute)
  6. Stir in butter and garlic. Continue stirring for another 2-4 minutes or until beans are tender-crisp.
  7. Add a dash of soy sauce to taste.
  8. Serve and enjoy.
