Amazing Green Beans

I've always struggled with green beans, but I finally found a winner with a little inspiration from Tyler Florence. 

Karin's Green Beans:

Take 1 pound of green beans, washed and ends trimmed.  In a wok or deep sauté pan fill with water until about 1 inch from the top.  Boil the water with about 1/2 tablespoon of sea salt.  When water comes to a boil add the green beans and cook for 5 minutes.  Green beans will be crisp, but cooked.  Pour green beans into a strainer and run under cold water to stop the cooking.  Meanwhile return the empty walk or sauté pan to the stove.  Over medium high heat add about 1/2 - 3/4 cup of scallions diced with about 1/2 tablespoon or 2 turns of the pan of EVOO.  Add 1 tsp of garlic and cook for about 3 minutes or until tender. Dish up and enjoy!

Serves about 4 people.
