I have at least four pounds of frozen green beans. How do I make them taste good?
There should be cooking instructions on the package. If you've never cooked frozen green beans before, it would be advisable to follow the manufacturer's instructions, at least the first time around.
As for how to make them taste good, adding copious amounts of high quality butter is a well proven technique in handling vegetables. Salt and pepper to taste. You could squeeze in a little fresh lemon juice if you like acidity. That tends to brighten flavors.

I would defrost and drain/dry and use it in a recipe that appeals to you.

With frozen, I'd do something that doesn't depend on them having top fresh flavor or snap. Simply sauteed in butter and/or olive oil, chopped garlic, s&p would be easy.
Or you can do Greek braised green beans with tomato, onion and garlic, etc. I've used fresh, but they braise until soft anyway. Lots of flavor. This recipe specifies fresh or frozen: http://www.thekitchn.com...
