skillet, frying pan or electric frying pan
800ggreen beans* I bought 2 (400g) pkgs, about 5- 6 cups
454gcontainer of fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 ½tablespoongarlic powder
pepper to taste
¼teaspoonsalt, depending on your liking * or alternatively, you can just use salted butter
Slice mushrooms (if you didn't purchase pre-sliced). I would recommend slicing them as thick as shown in the photo.
Cook beans in boiling water, over high heat, for about 10 minutes until just tender (a fork can go through)
Meanwhile, heat frying pan over med-high heat (or electric skillet) and sautee the mushrooms in butter for 1-2 minutes . Add garlic powder, onion powder and salt and cook stirring frequently for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Drain the beans and add them to the skillet with the mushroom mixture and add if desired, additional garlic powder, onion powder or salt to taste. Add a dash of pepper.
Continue to sautee, stirring frequently (stir fry style) for about 5-8 more minutes (to combine flavors).
Serve hot and enjoy!
