simple (paleo-friendly) - paleo garlic french green beans

Preparation: 10 minutes 

Cook: 20 minutes

Serves 3-4 


4 tablespoons of grass-fed unsalted butter (I used Keri Gold)

5 cloves of organic garlic, minced (you can use less garlic if you want, I´m preparing for a Vampire apocalypse) 

1 pound of organic French green beans 

Sea salt 

Black pepper 

Garlic Salt  


1. In a large skillet, heat 4 tablespoons of unsalted grass-fed butter on high. 

2. Once butter has melted, lower heat to medium-high then carefully place green beans into the melted butter. Stir for 5 minutes while on medium-high then lower the heat to medium and slowly mix in the minced garlic. Remember to stir consistently. 

3. 10 minutes in, season the green beans with sea salt, black pepper and garlic salt until you have reached your desired flavor, lower the heat to medium-low. Sauté and stir for 10 more minutes. 

4. Remove your green beans and pour butter on top if there is any left over

RAWR like a cavewoman and Enjoy! 
Did you know? 
I was curious on the differences between green beans and French green beans. Thought I would share this Wikipedia explanation.  
Green beans, also known as string beansnap bean in the northeastern and western United States, or ejotes in Mexico, are the unripe fruit of various cultivars of the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris).[1][2] Green bean cultivars have been selected especially for the fleshiness, flavor, or sweetness of their pods.

Haricots vertsFrench for "green beans", also known as French beansFrench green beansFrench filet beansFine beans (British English), is a variety of green bean that is longer, thinner, crisp, and tender.[citation needed] It is different from the haricot bean, which is a dry bean.
