Over time we have fixed them all sorts of ways like these delicious green bean bundles, or my brothers favorite green bean casserole or one of my favorites simply roasted green beans but now we all have a new favorite…these skillet green beans.
The beauty is they start out in the microwave for a quick steam, and then you finish them in a skillet until they are just crisp tender making them perfect each and every time.
My sis-in-law made this recipe for use when we were having dinner at the home not too long ago. I was helping with something else and all of a sudden I heard the microwave go off and I asked what was in there. She said oh the green beans…and I have to say I was a little skeptical. I don’t “cook” a whole lot in my microwave and I wasn’t too sure these were going to be so good, and then she threw them into a skillet and seasoned them with everything we love and then let get browned just a little giving them a perfect bite.
She started with some olive oil and then added in some garlic, salt & pepper. The flavors are simple but come together perfectly to really let the green beans shine through and make for a perfect side dish even on the busiest of weeknight.
I have made these green beans several times over the last month or so and each time they seem to get better and better. Feel free to change up the seasonings as you like, you could use all purpose seasoning or a lemon pepper seasoning would be great as well.
This is my go to green bean recipe and I hope it will be yours as well.
