This is one of my most favorite ways to make green beans. I like to add a little finely minced onion to the skillet with the garlic as well. I usually double this recipe because my family inhales it.

Use real garlic -- dry, minced garlic didn't do anything for the green beans.

These were just ok. I used real garlic and more than called for-glad I did. A few pinches of lemon pepper doesn't add substantial flavor, nor were they all that buttery.
