Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds French string beans (haricots verts), both ends removed
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon good olive oil
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Directions

Blanch the string beans in a large pot of boiling salted water for just 1 1/2 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 to 2 minutes, tossing occasionally, until lightly browned. Add the string beans, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss together. Reheat the string beans and serve.

Very tasty.I decided to experiment and put a little of low sodium soy sauce and sauteing the beans. Turned out so delicious item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this today to go with our Christmas dinner and it was great! Instead of blanching the green beans, I decided to steam them because I didn't want them to be too crisp. I wish I had made more because some of my guests were looking for seconds! item not reviewed by moderator and published

What a great, easy recipe. I wanted a lighter, healthier side for Thanksgiving so I made Ina's string beans with garlic. Super simple, and tasty! The touch of butter alongside the olive oil made the green beans rich and tasty without weighing down the vegetables. This will be my new go to green bean recipe without a doubt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy! I only had frozen french-style green beans on hand, but it still worked perfectly! Next time I'll add toasted sliced almonds...! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Embarrassed to admit I've never sauteed green beans. These were so simple, yet so delicious. Blanching/ice bath a bit of a pain but well worth it! The pork roast, applesauce and green beans are definite keepers - this meal will be made again - soon! item not reviewed by moderator and published
