This is a slight twist on The Pioneer Woman's Lemony Green Beans. This is a very easy, quick recipe that tastes really good! The browned butter and the lightly browned beans are delicious. My husband isn't the biggest green bean fan, but likes these. Definitely a good, easy side dish veggie recipe to have around.
Stir Fried Lemony Green Beans
12 oz frozen french cut green beans
lemon juice to taste
salt and pepper to taste
Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and stir constantly until it just begins to turn brown. If your skillet is dark, you can tilt it on edge a bit and see the color as it pools at the sode of the skillet. Add frozen green beans and cook, stirring frequently, until the green beans thaw. Gently press green beans into a single layer in the skillet and leave them alone for about 45 seconds, then stir and repeat with pressing them into the skillet. Do this a few times. The goal is to get the beans a little browned.
When the green beans are cooked to your desired doneness, remove them from the heat and stir in lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste.
