Ingredients

  • 2 cups green beans
  • 1/4 cup onion, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Greek seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 stick melted butter

Instructions

  1. Wash beans. Cut ends off. Place in microwaveable dish. Add onions.
  2. Melt 1/2 stick of butter and pour over beans and onions. Sprinkle with Greek seasoning salt and add 3 tablespoons of water. Cover with plastic wrap and place in microwave for 9 minutes.

How to Prepare Your Green Beans

Wash and cut the ends of the beans. I like to sort out any beans that have dry or black spots and discard them.

Cut the ends off the beans and place them in a microwaveable dish. Slice onion and sprinkle over beans. Sprinkle the Greek seasoning salt over the beans and dribble butter around over all the beans. Add 2 teaspoons of water and place plastic wrap over the dish.

Put in the microwave on high or 9 minutes. The instructions in my book say 9 to 13 minutes, but I don't like my beans to get shriveled up from overcooking.
