How to perfectly sauté green beans:
To perfectly sauté green beans, start by placing them in a pot of water over medium-high heat and bring them to a boil.
Reduce heat to low-medium and let them continue to boil for 5-8 minutes, or until they are just tender and can be pierced with a fork.
While the green beans are boiling, submerge a colander into a bowl of ice water and set aside.
When the beans are done boiling, use tongs or a slotted spoon to place them in the colander to stop the cooking process.
This will help them to not become soggy.
Next, melt 1-2 Tablespoons of butter over medium heat in a large skillet and toss green beans in it until they are heated through.
Season with salt and pepper or other desired seasonings and serve.
