Green Beans With Caramelized Red Onions

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 40 mins

A simple side dish from Bon Appetit. I usually cut back on both the oil and the amount of onions, and use fresh tarragon when I can.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onions; sauté until deep brown, about 35 minutes.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook beans in medium pot of boiling salted water until just crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.
  5. Drain; rinse under cold water until cool, then pat dry.
  6. Whisk remaining 3 tablespoons oil in vinegar and tarragon in large bowl to blend.
  7. Add beans and onions and toss to coat.
  8. Season with salt and pepper.
  9. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Just love the flavor of these green beans!!! I made this recipe with a couple of changes, I used french style canned green beans and sweet onions, but otherwise, followed as written. DH is going to be late tonite for dinner, so I tasted the beans and then took a photo and then added them back to the pan, lol!! Congrats on your win in the football pool and sorry for the late review.
