If you use fresh green beans, snap the tips and remove the strings. Cut them in pieces if too big. Wash them briefly and cook them in rolling boiling water for about 2-3 minutes. They are done when cooked but still slightly crunchy. Drain well and use them as described in this recipe. For canned green beans simply drain them before use. Frozen green beans should be thawed before.
