Perfect Green Beans

November 25, 2019

This green bean recipe has been in my little arsenal of recipes for YEARS! They are super easy and literally always perfect, hence the name.  This is the perfect side dish for your weeknight dinner, Sunday dinner or the fanciest of fancy celebrations.  With Thanksgiving coming in just two days, if you are looking for another yummy side dish to add to your table, I got you covered! :)


1 Tablespoon Butter 
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Small Onion, Finely Diced
2 Cloves of Garlic, Minced
1 Teaspoon Salt (or to taste)
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1 Pound Fresh Green Beans, Trimmed {or frozen!}
1 Can Chicken Broth {or veggie!}

{In a large non-stick pan, add your butter and oil and saute the diced onion over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes, or until softened. }

{After the minced onions soften, add the fresh garlic to the pan and cook for about a few seconds more.}

{Add the green beans to the pan and mix thoroughly to coat them with the onion, garlic butter and oil mixture.}

{Season generously with salt and pepper.  Add in some red pepper flakes at this point too, if you like things spicy. :)}

{Add your chicken broth to the pan and reduce the heat to low.}

{Cover the pan and let them simmer in this flavorful broth for about 10-15 minutes. Taste for seasoning, add more salt and pepper as needed.}

{Serve piping hot and ENJOY!}

{There you have it - the PERFECT green beans.  Simple, flavorful, not too firm and definitely not too soft.  These would be wonderful on your Thanksgiving table, for a special occasion dinner or just to have on a weeknight with a piece of fish.}
