2 cups green beans, trimmed
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup almonds, slivered or sliced
1 tbsp chopped chives – dried (I have used both dried and fresh from the garden and frankly I like to used dried chives here)
Salt and ground black pepper to taste


In a skillet, saute the green beans in butter until tender-crisp. Make sure to turn the green beans or they will burn. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Be careful not to go too heavy on the salt. Once the green beans are tender, add the almonds to the skillet and heat through until the almonds are toasted. At the last minute or two add the dried chives. Serve with any meat (pork tenderloin or a good sirloin is my favorite here) and a red wine or beer.
