green beans with garlic butter sauce

A nice change from plain steamed beans.

1 pound fresh green beans, cleaned
3 Tbs butter
1 clove garlic, finely minced or pressed (see this video for easy peeling)

1. Combine minced garlic with butter and heat until butter is melted.
2. In separate large pot, bring 1 inch of water and a big pinch of salt to a boil.
3. Put beans into boiling water and cover, cooking for 5-7 minutes.
4. Drain beans, add butter sauce, toss and salt to taste.

Cooking the beans too long will yield a mushy bean.
The salt in the water helps the beans keep their green.
The longer the garlic sits is melted butter, the better the garlic flavor permeates.
A garlic press is a handy tool to have.
