Just a quick post today about the green beans I made last night with our meatloaf. I’d bought these at the farmers market a couple of days earlier and didn’t have a chance to cook them right away. I decided to do a bit of a sauté / steam method. Very tasty; still very crisp and the full flavor of fresh green beans. As a kid I didn’t like that taste but I do so enjoy it now. The mushrooms were the perfect complement.
Fresh Green Beans with Mushrooms
- 2 Tbs butter
- 1 large quart basket of fresh from the garden green beans
- 1 large Portobello mushroom
- salt, pepper, and granulated garlic
Wash and trim green beans. In medium skillet melt butter and add mushroom cut into large chunks. Add green beans and cover; cook for 5 minutes over medium heat. Season with salt, pepper and garlic if desired; stir and cover; cook an additional 5 minutes or until desired tenderness.
