skillet, frying pan or electric frying pan
800ggreen beans* I bought 2 (400g) pkgs, about 5- 6 cups
¼tspsalt, 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 you see in the photo.
Boil beans in hot water over high heat for about 10 minutes under just tender (a fork can go through)
Meanwhile, sautee the mushrooms in butter in a large frying pan or electric frying pan over medium heat. 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!
