Heat oil in a large skillet or pan over medium-high heat. Add green beans and cook; stirring often until seared in spots, about 2 – 3 minutes. Push beans to the side; add garlic and additional olive oil if necessary; cook until fragrant, about 20 – 30 seconds. Cover green beans and reduce temperature setting to low. Cook over low heat for 8 – 10 minutes. (If using cookware other than multi-ply stainless steel, cover green beans with water, reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook until beans are tender.) Add tomatoes and stir. Once green beans are cooked, remove from heat; stir in balsamic vinegar, sea salt and pepper. Serve.
