Green beans are a classic easy side dish. Far from being a boring, gross vegetable, they provide a beautiful base for all sorts of dishes. You can dress them up and wrap them in bacon and glaze them with balsamic vinegar, or you can put them in a casserole or soup.
Today I’m sharing my favorite quick and easy way to make green beans. You can make these with a canned green beans, frozen green beans or green beans fresh from your garden. It is up to you—this is just a basic recipe and it’s fast and my whole family loves it.
I first had green beans fixed this way at my mother-in-law’s house. She got this recipe from another lady in our church and it has become a staple at her house and mine as well. The ingredients are simple and you can get them at Walmart.
All you need is two regular cans of green beans or one family sized can of green beans, space two packages of Goya ham flavoring black pepper and some butter .
Begin by rinsing your green beans draining all the water from them then barely covering them with water in a small pot. Add two packages of the ham seasoning, pepper to taste and one to two tablespoons of salted butter.
Cover with a lid and bring to a boil and boil for five to 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
