An easy recipe for fresh green beans, it is so fast that it's perfect for a weeknight! Even my picky kids will eat this one.
Put as many green beans as you want into a 12 inch skillet. Add 2-3 tablespoons of water and cover to steam, about 4-5 minutes.
Once the green beans are bright green, remove the cover and dump out any excess water. Add butter and salt, sauté. Allow green beans to brown slightly, about 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately.
Optional: My kids won't eat the almonds, but most adults love this recipe with almonds! I add slivered almonds about the same time as the butter, they'll get browned and perfectly compliment the green beans.
