Steve's Sautéed Green Beans

Cut ends off of green beans. Place in large flat-bottom pan with water, butter, salt and sugar. Cover and cook until beans start to become tender.

Remove lid and cook until almost tender. Do not cook to the point that beans turn dark green. If pan is removed from heat and left covered, beans will become more tender within about 10 minutes.

*Note: If possible, individually hand-select the largest green beans of approximately the same length for the best looking presentation.
