This easy-to-do vegetable dish becomes memorable with the addition of marjoram. The taste is very subtle, yet distinctive. I like to fix beans this way for special dinners, since the bright green is so pretty on the plate. -Charlene Griffin, Minocqua, Wisconsin


  • 1-1/2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram


  1. Place the beans and water in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain. Add the butter, salt, pepper and marjoram; stir until butter is melted.
