How to Cook Fresh Green Beans
To prepare green beans, trim and discard the stems and ends from the beans. Wash just before cooking. Use a large enough pot or microwaveable dish to avoid overcrowding the beans. Cook the beans just until crisp-tender. Overcooking robs them of their bright green color and fresh flavor.
Smoked pork chops, which are already fully cooked, can be found at the meat counter in the grocery store.
