PRESTON'S YUMMY GREEN BEANS

This recipe came to me from, of all people, my boyfriend, who does not cook at all. His idea of making a meal is pouring a bowl of cold cereal! But someone once made green beans this way and he took note of it. Now that he's told me about it, I don't think I'll cook them any other way. They are to die for!
