Sauted Green Beans

We love this recipe!

2 big handfuls Fresh Green Beans or 1 small bag Frozen
Salt/Pepper/Garlic Powder/Onion Powder to taste
2-3 whole Garlic Cloves, peeled and smashed
1/2 Onion, diced
1 cup sliced mushroom (optional)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, whole (optional)
1/2 - 3/4 cup Chicken stock
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 turns of pan EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
1 T butter

Place a big saute pan or skillet on med heat and add EVOO and butter. When butter is melted, add onion, mushrooms and tomatoes. Saute 3-4 minutes and add garlic. Saute a few more minutes, (do not allow garlic to burn, it will become bitter and ruin the dish) then add Green Beans and turn to coat Green Beans in oil, add seasonings. Saute 5 minutes and then add Chicken stock and cover. Simmer on Med/Low heat for 10 minutes or until the Green Beans are tender enough for you. Remove lid and let simmer until liquid has reduced by half. Turn off heat and sprinkle Parmesan cheese over beans. Let sit for 2-3 minutes, then serve! These are awesome and we have them several nights a week! I hope you enjoy this recipe!!
