We grow Italian Green Beans each year and I love to saute them in a pan with olive oil, onions and lots of garlic! Of course this recipe works with string beans or asparagus as well!

    fresh green beans (i used italian green beans in my picture)

    extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp
    butter
  • 2 Tbsp
    garlic red wine vinegar (or balsamic vinegar), more or less to taste

How to Make Sauteed Garlic Green Beans

Step-by-Step

  1. Clean green beans and cut into 2-3 inch lengths. Chop onion and garlic and heat extra virgin olive oil (or vegetable oil if you don't have any) in a large skillet on medium heat. Place garlic and onion in pan and saute for a minute or two, just until they begin to turn translucent (I add some salt and pepper to the onions & garlic to season them also).
  2. Add the green beans to the pan, sprinkle some balsamic vinegar or Garlic Red Wine Vinegar on top, season to taste with sea salt and coarse ground pepper and toss to coat well.
  3. Cover with a lid, turn down heat to medium/low and continue to simmer for about 20-25 minutes, tossing occasionally to cook evenly.
  4. The green beans are done when they are tender. Top with dots of butter, toss and they are ready to serve. These are delicious when served alone as an appetizer or with just about anything else as a side dish!
