Ree's Green Beans

1 lb green beans (ends snapped off - I cheated and got the pre-cleaned ones, packaged ones)
1 cup chopped onion
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper (capsicum)
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt (or more to taste)
Lots of cracked black pepper
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil

1. Heat the butter and oil in a skillet. Add the garlic, onions and red bell pepper, and saute for a few minutes.

2. Throw in the green beans and stir them around for a minute.

3. Pour in the chicken broth, along with salt and pepper.

4. Turn the heat down to low, and cover the skillet with a lid - but leave it cracked just a bit for the steam to escape. Let this cook away for 15-20 mins, until the liquid almost completely evaporates and the beans are fairly soft, but still have some bite. Serve!
