Saute of Green Beans

Submitted by: LADYPHOENIX61

Introduction

In the south some cooks prefer their green beans(or string beans) "cooked down" with a huge hunk of salt pork which turns them into near mush! Yuck! I prefer a "crisp-tender, lighter flavor flor my green beans and this recipe gives them just that. 1/2 tsp salt can be added to this recipe which will bring the sodium content to 298.5 mg/serv.
Because blanching may be unknown territory for some, I've included this information in a link. I hope it helps!
