To make super easy steamed green beans, simply add a small bag of pre-cut and pre-washed green beans to a rice cooker while you are making the rest of your dinner. Follow the directions on your steamer. Here’s the one I use.
Result: Beautifully steamed green beans with 30 seconds of effort!
P.S. I recommend setting the timer for 5 minutes less than the instructions, otherwise they come out a tad overdone.
P.P.S. Spend an extra minute trimming off the ends, which can get brown or soft after a few days in the frig. While you’re at it cut the longer ones in half and make them more uniformly sized, insuring they’ll all be cooked to the same doneness.
