  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans, stem ends removed
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. In a large skillet, heat butter and oil over medium-low. Add green beans; partially cover, and cook, tossing occasionally, until green beans are tender and browned in spots, 30 minutes. Add pine nuts; cook until nuts are toasted, 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Notes

It can take a lot of time to cut off the stem ends of green beans one by one. Instead, gather a small bunch, and remove several ends at once.
