Burnt Green Beans

This recipe comes from my friend Liz. The interesting thing about that is: Liz hates to cook! This sure-fire crowd pleaser is one dish that even the most novice cook can master. Your guests will never guess that the trick to these beans is to burn them.

1 pound green beans
1 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper

Wash and dry beans. Trim the ends. Toss with olive oil. Preheat a large frying pan. Add green beans and let them burn. Seriously. Burn them until they are black on one side, the toss the beans and burn then on the other side. When beans are mostly black, toss with salt and pepper. They can be served hot or room temperature.
