I buy the great big bag of frozen green beans from Sams. My family's favorite way to eat them is when I saute them over fairly high heat in the pan that I just cooked dinner in (so that a little bit of the remaining seasonings from the pork chops, or chicken, or whatever, seasons the beans. Then I drizzle with a little bit of olive oil. That's it! They always compliment the main dish and are never rubbery because the cook fast on high heat. Another option is to steam them in an actual steamer, not in water in the microwave! Good luck-you've gotten many great suggestions already!
