Here’s a very simply string beans with garlic recipe that pairs very well with any meat or fish. We flavor our string beans with minced garlic but you can also add thinly sliced almonds, tomato, etc.
- 1 pound of string beans with the ends removed
- Kosher salt
- Extra virgin olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced very well
- Freshly ground black pepper
Steam the string beans in a large saute pan for 5-10 minutes (Italians like their vegetables more on the well done side). Remove the string beans from the pan and set aside.
Heat the extra virgin olive oil in the same large saute pan over medium heat and cook the minced garlic for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the string beans, Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, and mix well. Remove and serve!
