Ingredients
  • 1 pound green beans, stemmed
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh tarragon
Directions

Bring the water, butter, salt and green beans to a boil in a Dutch oven or large deep skillet. Cover and steam over medium-high heat until the vegetable is brightly colored and just tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

Remove the lid and continue to cook until the liquid evaporates, 1 to 2 minutes longer, adding the tarragon at this point. Saute to intensify flavors, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Adjust seasonings, including pepper to taste, and serve.
