Garlic Butter String Beans (green beans) are the perfect easy side dish! Everyone will love these delectable tender-crisp string beans. A delicious healthier addition to your table.
Boil a salted pot of water for the beans and also prepare a large bowl of cold water with ice cubes. Trim the ends of the beans.
Once the water is boiling, add the string beans and cook them for 2-3 minutes. Drain them and add them to the bowl of ice water so they stop cooking (this process is called blanching).
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter is sizzling, stir in the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
Drain the beans and add them to the skillet. Cook for about 5 minutes, tossing/stirring often, or until the beans are as tender as you like.
Season beans with salt & pepper as needed. Serve immediately.
