If using fresh out of the garden beans or purchasing them loose from the supermarket, clean the beans before cooking. Rinse the beans in cold water to remove any loose dirt. Trim each end, removing the string with a paring knife if necessary. If you buy packaged green beans in the produce section of your supermarket, these are ready to use.
If you don't have lemon pepper seasoning, add an extra pinch of pepper and extra lemon juice.
Taste before adjusting salt and pepper. Some lemon pepper seasoning contains salt, some does not.
