Here's a quick guide to the various ways to cook fresh green beans. Note: The smaller the diameter of the bean, the less time it will take to become tender.

Blanch: 2 to 3 minutes
Boil: 4 to 5 minutes
Steam: 5 to 6 minutes
Saute: 6 to 7 minutes
Stir-fry: 4 to 5 minutes
Grill: 8 to 10 minutes
Roast*: 15 minutes (at 450 degrees)
Braise*: 20 minutes



* Slightly older and overgrown beans benefit from roasting and braising.
