How long to steam green beans ?Next >>
Green beans should be crisp-tender if steamed for 18 to 22 minutes. Check early if you like them even crisper or steam longer for softer beans. To steam them, place steamer basket in a large saucepan and add water to just below the steamer basket; heat to boiling before adding the vegetables. Longer steaming will result in loss of more color from the beans.
