1 pound green beans
1/2 -1 tablespoon butter, depending on how much you like butter
1/2 -1 clove minced garlic, depending on how much you like garlic
Place the green beans in a steaming basket and steam them for 4-5 minutes, until they are almost done, but still a little crunchy.
In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter and add the garlic.
Throw in the green beans and cook, stirring frequently, until they are limp and bright green, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from heat and serve hot.
