Nutty Green Beans

  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans, washed and ends trimmed
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  • Bring a large saucepan of water with 2 teaspoons of salt to a boil. Add the green beans and cook until just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain in a colander and refresh under cold running water. Drain.
  • In the same saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the pecans, Worcestershire sauce, remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt and the black pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until the pecans are golden brown and fragrant, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the green beans and cook, stirring, until well coated and warmed through, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and serve.
