  • 13 cup chicken stock or 13 cup vegetable stock


  1. Heat a not stick pan on med-high.
  2. Add compound butter and let it melt.
  3. When butter just starts to bubble and turn a little brown around the edge, add green beans.
  4. Add the stock and cover with a tight fitting lid.
  5. Let it cook on high for about 5 min or until steam slows down.
  6. Remove lid and cook for an additional 3 to 4 min, while tossing beans n the pan to keep them moving. They will burn if you don’t keep them on the move.
