Fresh Green Beans (a.k.a Tom Cruise Green Beans)
- 2 pounds fresh green beans, tips removed
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
Wash and drain the beans. Put 1 cup water in a medium saucepan. Add the beans and cook until tender but still very crisp, about 6 minutes.
Drain the beans and add the butter, tossing to coat as it melts. Season with salt.
