Ingredients

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans, ends trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 1 lemon)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, plus more for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a large skillet with a tight-fitting lid, bring 1/2 inch water to a boil; salt generously.

  2. Step 2

    Add green beans; reduce to a simmer, and cover skillet. Steam beans, tossing occasionally, until crisp-tender, 6 to 10 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Pull lid back slightly, and tilt skillet to drain water from green beans; add lemon juice, butter, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to melt butter. Serve green beans garnished with additional thyme, if desired.
