The best green beans ever

I seem to struggle with basic recipes such as steaming peas and frying bacon. Green beans fall into this category.  I either undercook them or overcook them; either way they turn out not good. Welp, I finally figured it out. Slightly sweet, tangy and caramelized, these green beans were the easiest.

Directions:

Heat a cast iron pan over high heat. Add the butter. When melted, add the green beans. Cook on high for about five minutes, stirring occasionally. Toss in the marsala and thoroughly coat the green beans. Keep cooking until beans start to brown and caramelize, about three minutes. Add the lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Continue cooking another few minutes until green beans are tender.

  1. That sounds wonderful! I love chicken marsala. Guess I’ll have to get a bottle and try it out with green beans.
