  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound green beans cleaned and trimmed
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced


  • Heat a large cast iron pan or skillet over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Heat until oil begins to shimmer.
  • Toss in green beans and sprinkle with salt. Stir constantly and cook until tender, about 5 – 7 minutes. The beans will turn a deep, rich green color. Lower heat and add in butter and garlic, stirring until garlic is fragrant and butter has melted, about 1 minute more. Remove from heat and serve immediately.


  • To prep green beans: place beans in a colander and rinse under cold water. Snap off the end of the bean that was once connected to the entire plant (it will have a little stem attached). Voila! A prepped green bean!
