I am a firm believer that fresh is best. I developed this recipe to take advantage of our garden veggies. It really shows off the full flavor of the green beans. —Carol Mayer, Sparta, Illinois

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 pounds fresh green beans
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven, heat oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook and stir 45-60 seconds or until golden. Using a slotted spoon, remove garlic from pan; reserve. Add green beans to pan; cook and stir 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  2. Stir in broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 8-10 minutes or just until beans are tender and broth is almost evaporated, stirring occasionally. Stir in reserved garlic.
