Fresh Green Beans with Mushrooms

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.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
