Buttered Green Beans


Green beans and Pork Chop

I grew up with  vegetables, meat or fish and fruits on the table for a meal. That is how my mother feed us, vegetables and protein to keep us healthy and strong. Now that I have a family of my own,it's my turn to serve my family a complete healthy meal as my mom does. One good thing about my children is that they loves to eat vegetables specially my 3 years old. If you ask him to choose between green salad and chicken, he surely will choose the first one.

Green Beanalso called as string beans and snap beans are available all year round. Wash them thoroughly in water. Trimmed off the top only and leave the tail end. You can cut it at desired lengths  or leave whole.

Cooking Procedures :

 1. Boil water, add the green beans,blanch for 4-5 minutes until crisp tender. Drain and plunge into an ice cold water to stop the cooking process and retain its color. Remove from cold water and set aside.

2. Heat butter and oil together. Saute garlic and onion, add the green beans and the tomato. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add fresh basil(optional). Serve with hot.

Pork Chop 
  1. Marinate with lemon  and pepper seasoning salt for at least an hour. 
  2. Heat vegetable oil .
  3. Fry until golden brown.


  1. my children loves buttered green beans whether the string beans or the sitsaro. I also make sure we always have veggies every meal :)

    Let's all get healthy for 2012 and in the next years to come :)

    Happy New Year sis!

  2. I love green beans kaso mga kasama ko kasi sa bahay nirarayuma na di nila ma-enjoy, gusto ko din na laging magkatambal ang meat at veggies para balance

  3. i think the porkchop should come with gravy.

    also, are the vegetables buttered or did you use margarine on it?

    string beans (green) + carrots (orange) + corn (yellow) = a colorful vegetable platter.

  4. i use butter and vegetable oil to sautee the ingredients. i also make buttered mixed veggies.

  5. can i have the pork chop? im also used to eat veggie, meat and dessert, complete meal kahit saging or any fruits lng dessert...

    bawal na beans sa bahay kc mirarayuma na c mother...
