Green Beans with Garlic and Shallots

August 11, 2010

I love green beans and I love green beans even more with a lot of garlic, shallots and butter.  I cannot think of any meat, poultry or fish entrees that wouldn’t love to have a side of green beans next to it.  They are delicious just blanched with some added butter but adding a few other ingredients can really make a difference depending what you are serving them with that day.  They are always on my grocery list for a fast, simple and tasty vegetable and you will never waste one green bean.  They are delicious chilled and ready for your salad the next day.

 Green Beans with Garlic and Shallots

 Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Green Beans (washed and ends removed)
  • 3 T. Unsalted Butter
  • 1 T. Olive Oil
  • 3 Large Shallots (large chop)
  • 2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
  • Kosher Salt
  • Freshly Ground Pepper

  Preparation

  1. Blanche the string beans in a pot of boiling salted water (about 3 minutes)
  2. Drain immediately and immerse in a bowl of ice water
  3. Heat the butter and oil in a saute pan and saute the shallots and garlic on medium for about 5-10 minutes (until lightly browned)
  4. Drain the green beans and add to the shallot and garlic mixture and toss well
  5. Heat thoroughly and serve piping hot

 

 (Serves 4-6)
