Lick the Pan Green Beans!


Lick the Pan Green Beans! -


1 lb green beans, trimmed, cut in 1-inch pieces
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2-2 cups water (may need more later)
1 teaspoon salt
all purpose Greek seasoning (optional)
liquid smoke (optional)


Place olive oil in the bottom of a medium to large saucepan.
Put green beans in pan, then sprinkle 1 teaspoon salt over the beans.
Pour in water.
Bring the pot to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium low, cover partially, and simmer for 45-60 minutes, or until the water is almost completely gone, stirring occasionally.
This is approximate, so check every so often, you may need to add a little more water to get beans cooked to desired doneness.
Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
Note: My sister loves to add Greek seasoning and a few dashes of liquid smoke to this. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
