Growing up, Mom always made green beans with a little ham, bacon, or new potatoes; in any combination ~ or just plain bacon grease. I still like them prepared any of those ways, but this new version makes me happy too!
The green beans are braised in chicken broth that’s doctored up with garlic cloves and thyme. Add a drizzle of olive oil and a little salt and pepper, and enjoy this dish that is a Martha Stewart recipe.
In my way of thinking, you can never have enough fresh green beans in the summer time ~ I hope you try this quick braise!
Braised Green Beans
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
5 peeled cloves garlic
1 pound trimmed green beans
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
Salt and pepper, to taste
Extra-virgin olive oil
In a large skillet, bring broth and garlic cloves to a simmer over medium-high heat.
Add green beans and thyme and cover.
Cook until desired amount of tenderness.
Season with salt and pepper.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Serve with lemon slices.
Delicious!!! I wonder how this would be with a sprinkling of shredded nutty, salty Parmesan over the top?
