Jewel's Garlicky Green Beans
1 lb fresh green beans -- cut into 3" pieces
2 TBS butter
3 cloves garlic -- finely minced
1 tsp chicken bouillon granules (not cube!)
1/4 cup white wine
salt and pepper to taste
Steam or boil green beans for 4-5 minutes until crisp-tender.
In medium skillet over medium heat melt butter, add garlic, and saute for 3 minutes or until tender and fragant.
Add green beans, stir well to coat with the butter/garlic mixture, sprinkle chicken bouillon over beans and stir to mix, then saute another 5 minutes to desired doneness.
Turn heat up to medium high, then pour in the wine and let it sizzle and evaporate most of the alcohol. Lower heat, add salt and pepper to taste, and stir thoroughly. Serve immediately!
