Spicy Garlic Green Beans


4 cups green beans

1 stick butter

1 tablespoon garlic (minced or thinly sliced)

2 teaspoons crushed red pepper (more if you like it really spicy) 

salt & pepper to taste



  1. Put a medium-sized pot ⅔ full of water over high heat.
  2. Trim green beans, removing stems and brown ends.
  3. Place a medium-sized saute pan on low heat. Add butter, garlic and crushed red pepper. Allow to heat slowly and gently.
  4. Keep a close eye on this, if your flame is too high, your butter/garlic/crushed red pepper may burn.
  5. Once water has come to a boil, cook your green beans for 7 minutes or when beans are al dente.
  6. Remove from water, drain thoroughly and then toss in butter mixture.
  7. Season with salt and pepper then serve!
