Fresh String Beans

This is another Steak staple side dish my mom made.

Green Beans (steamed)

1 pound string bean (green beans)

2 cups water

Bring 2 cups of water in your 4 quart sauce pot to a boil with the steamer basket in place. Prepare beans by removing both ends and cutting in half or thirds. When the water is at a rapid boil add the beans. Cook until tender.
