Garlic Mushroom Green Beans

Adding this picture although I did not take it.  It looks close so enjoy :)

Garlic Mushroom Green Beans:

2 large handfuls fresh green beans, trimmed if necessary (I like the bag of beans from Costco - they are so thin and crisp but if you have your own in your garden, even better!)
4-5 large mushrooms, sliced
1/2 small-medium onion diced
1-2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed (I love my pampered chef garlic press)
1/3-1/2 c beef broth
3 tbsp butter, divided
1 tbsp oil
salt and pepper

In a large sautee pan (LARGE and at least 1-2 inches deep), melt 2 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp olive oil & cook the onion until translucent. Add mushrooms and cook until soft and browning. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, 30 seconds or so. Toss in washed trimmed beans (those skinny ones from Costco do not even need trimming) and stir. Pour in beef broth and stir, put a lid on and cook the beans until crisp tender (you may need more broth or water for this). Add last tbsp butter and salt and pepper to taste. Toss together one last time and serve immediately.

These are delicious as a side dish to any meat - enjoy!
