Sauteed Garlic Butter Green Beans

AvatarPosted by

I’ve been pretty much staying at home lately, and my favorite thing ever every day is really cooking and eating (haha, surprise surprise, I know) It’s kind of funny to think about how every hour by the hour I am just thinking “what am I eating next?” I always need a veggie side with my entree, and so when I made my Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken the other day, this Sauteed Garlic Butter Green Beans was perfect!

This dish is a simple side dish that goes with almost anything (beef, seafood, etc.). It’s very easy to make, and I love the garlicky buttery flavor! To be honest, there’s nothing insanely special with this recipe, but that’s what’s great about it. It’s simple!

If you prefer to oven roast the green beans and not saute on stove top, that’s another easy yummy option too! Check out my Oven Roasted Garlic Butter Green Beans recipe here!
