Green Beans with Garlic

Green Beans with GarlicI love green beans and so does my husband.  If it were up to my husband, we would be having them steamed with butter (lots of butter for him) because that is his favorite way.  But not for me.  I like to experiment and do them different ways.  Like
these Green Beans Gremolata or these Garlicky Lemon Green Beans with Pine Nuts.

Green Beans with Garlic

1 1/2 pounds green beans, both ends trimmed
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
3 to 4 garlic cloves, minced
Freshly ground black pepper
Sea salt

Blanch the green beans in a large pot of boiling salted water for 3 minutes. Drain immediately and immerse in a large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. When they are cool, drain and set aside.

Heat the butter and olive oil in a very large saute pan over medium heat and cook the garlic for 1 minute. Add the string beans, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss together. Keep tossing until green beans are heated through.

Plate and serve.
