Sautéed Green Beans and Onions

Vegetables always taste the best fresh out of the garden!  This is one great thing about summer, cooking is easier because it doesn't take much effort to make food that tastes fabulous.  In my opinion there are a few summertime stars; tomatoes, corn on the cob, and of course green beans.  I could eat these everyday for a month and not get tired of them!  
They are great steamed and served with butter, but you have to try them sautéed with onions.  They are amazing!  It's easy too, only one ext step and only one pan gets dirty.  Just make sure not to over cook them, tender crisp is just right!

Sautéed Green Beans and Onions 

  • 2 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 - 2 lb. green beans, trimmed and washed
  • Sea salt
In a medium sauce pan melt butter over medium heat.  Add olive oil and diced onion and stir until onions are coated in the butter and oil.  Cover, reduce heat to medium low and cook for 10 minutes.  Add freshly washed beans, sprinkle with sea salt and stir until beans and onions are well mixed. Cover and cook for 10 - 15 minutes until beans are just tender.  Serve immediately.

We never grow green beans. I love them even raw! Are they hard to grow?

Hi Liana,

These look scrumptious! I love green beans but have never grown them. Nothing like fresh green beans though. Pinning and sharing!
