Step 1

Cut the string beans in approximately 2-inch lengths, diagonally.

Bring a large pan of heavily salted water to a boil. Add the beans and boil for 3 or 4 minutes, or until barely tender.

Drain and refresh in iced water for 1 minute. Drain and dry well.

When ready to serve, heat the butter in a sauté pan until it is foamy. Add the beans and toss in the butter for 1 or 2 minutes, until heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve in a heated serving bowl or arrange attractively on each plate as an accompaniment to an entrée.
