Blistered Green Beans
Cook trimmed green beans in boiling or almost boiling water for 6-10 minutes, until tender and that squeaky texture is gone. At this point, you can stick in the fridge and finish preparing later -- this is a great way to do fresh veggies for a big meal like Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Heat a large skillet pan, then add butter/oil/bacon fat to coat the bottom of the pan.
Add parboiled green beans, searing/blistering the beans and stirring.
Add seasonings (pick one grouping), stir & cook a little longer, then serve.
red pepper flakes
drips of sesame oil
