Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Drop in the green beans and let the water return to a boil. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until the beans are tender but still have some bite. Drain them into a colander and rinse the beans. shake the colander to remove the excess water.
In a large skillet, heat the oil. Cook the garlic over medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring often, or until it is golden.
Add the beans with salt. Cook over medium heat, tossing them frequently, for 3 to 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from the heat and serve at once.
Notes: Haven't tried it yet.
Swerve me? The path to my fixed purpose is laid with iron rails,
whereon my soul is grooved to run. Over unsounded gorges, through
the rifled hearts of mountains, under torrents' beds, unerringly I rush!
-- Captain Ahab, "Moby Dick"
