Steamed Yellow Pole Beans with Herbed Garlic Butter

4 cups pole beans
1 TBSP butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1 TBSP lemon grass, choped
Salt TT
Pepper TT

Snap or clip off the end of the stem end of the bean.  Arrange them in a steamer for 15 minutes (I used this one), or microwave them with a TBSP of water in a bowl covered with plastic wrap for 8-10 minutes.

Heat a saute pan to medium-high heat and melt butter.  Add the garlic and sweat for 1-2 minutes, reduce heat to low.  Throw in the lemon grass and swirl for a couple of minutes (a large portion of the woody end of the grass may be added and removed prior to serving).  Pour the herbed butter mixture over the beans.  Add salt and pepper and toss.  Boom your done.
