Karl’s Garlic Oregano Green Beans

I am always experimenting with quick ways to spruce up plain steamed green beans. This one was to go with my Chicken Pesto with Angel Hair Pasta.

Karl’s Garlic Oregano Green Beans


1 lb. Green beans, ends trimmed cut into 1″ pieces
1 Tbs. Butter
1 clove Garlic, pressed
½ tsp. oregano
½ Tbs. Balsamic vinegar
¼ tsp. pepper, or to taste
Pinch Kosher salt


1. Steam green beans until tender crisp. Drain and run cold water over them to stop them from over cooking.

2. Put the butter, garlic, and oregano into the pot and cook on medium high for 1 minute.

3. Turn off the heat and add the vinegar, beans, pepper and salt.  Toss to coat the beans with the butter and herbs.

4. Warm up the beans with the heat of the pot and serve immediately.
