  1. Put the skillet on the stove and turn the heat to high. When the skillet is hot, carefully add the oil.
  2. Add the green beans, salt, and pepper and spread the beans evenly in the skillet. Cook and toss occasionally, using the tongs, until the beans are browned in spots, about 10 minutes. Serve right away.
