How to Cook Green Beans

Good enough to eat straight from the garden, fresh green beans are wonderfully versatile. Here are four ways to cook green beans, plus our favorite way to serve the crunchy veggie.

Start with 12 ounces fresh green beans. Wash beans and remove ends and strings. Leave beans whole, or cut them into 1-inch pieces (makes 2-1/2 cups), or slice them lengthwise for French-cut beans.

How to Cook Green Beans on the Stove

Cook green beans, covered, in a small amount of boiling salted water until crisp-tender:

- 10 to 15 minutes for whole or cut green beans

- 5 to 10 minutes for French-cut green beans

How to Cook Green Beans in the Microwave

Place green beans in a casserole dish with 2 tablespoons water. Microwave, covered, on 100 percent power (high) until crisp-tender, stirring once:

- 8 to 12 minutes for whole or cut green beans

- 7 to 10 minutes for French-cut green beans

How to Steam Green Beans

In a steamer cook whole, cut, or French-cut green beans, covered, for 18 to 22 minutes or until crisp-tender.

How to Saute Green Beans

Step 1: Blanch green beans

Bring a large saucepan of water to boiling. Add 1 tablespoon salt and the green beans. Cook beans for 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain beans and immediately plunge them into ice water. Let the beans sit in ice water for 3 minutes or until cool. Drain well and set aside.

Step 2: Saute green beans

In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add beans. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through. Season with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Remove from heat.

How to Make Green Bean Casserole

Step 1: Cook green beans

Place green beans in a casserole dish with 2 tablespoons water. Microwave, covered, on 100 percent power (high) until crisp-tender, stirring once:

- 8 to 12 minutes for whole or cut green beans

- 7 to 10 minutes for French-cut green beans

Drain beans well.

Step 2: Combine with filling

In a large mixing bowl stir together one 10-3/4-ounce can condensed cream of mushroom soup and black pepper to taste. Stir in the beans. Transfer mixture to a 1-quart casserole.

Step 3: Bake casserole

Sprinkle the top with 1-1/3 cups French-fried onions or bread crumbs. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until the mixture is heated through and the topping is golden.
