I’ve never been a huge fan of green beans…unless they come in casserole form.
But these, I like. And I serve them at least once a week, even though my family frowns. My husband eats them, reluctantly. My 4-year-old sometimes splits them open and pulls the tiny beans out of the center. My 2-year-old ignores them, or plops them on my plate. That’s okay. I’m happy to have more.
Best of all? They’re simple. Yet, they’re “fancy” enough to serve to guests, if you like.
- 1/2 lb. green beans
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp. fat (lard, bacon grease, olive oil)
- Sea salt to taste
Put your green beans in a medium frying pan over medium heat.
Add your garlic and oil.
Saute until they begin to blister just a little bit.
Done! Serve alongside meatloaf, or beef and potatoes, or whatever you like.
