Lets start by trimming the ends of the green beans
Take a pot and set it over medium heat. Add the green beans to the water as soon as the water comes to a rolling boil
Add some salt and cook the beans for 5-6 minutes. I like mine al dente.
Prepare an ice bath by adding ice to a bowl with some water
After the 5 or 6 minutes remove the green beans using a slotted spoon
Immediately immerse them in the ice water. This stops them from further cooking
let it soak in there for a few minutes.
Remove the green beans once it has cooled onto another bowl
Lets start the sauté. In a pan set over medium heat add the olive oil.
to the olive oil add the crushed garlic
Cook the garlic gently to release its flavor into the oil, don't let it burn.
One the oil is fragrant add the green beans
stir this gently
Season with salt.
Add a tbs of yummy butter to finish it off. Yum. I love butter
Let it melt
stir it one last time
