    breezermom's Note:

    I love the tiny little green beans I can find packaged in some grocery stores labeled haricots verts! I can just eat them like candy, but they are even better cooked this way!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cook the green beans in boiling salted water to cover 3 to 4 minutes, or until crisp tender. Drain. Plunge the beans into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain.
    2. 2
      Melt the butter and brown sugar with olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add shallots, and saute 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add vinegar, and saute 10 minutes or until the shallots are golden brown and tender.
    3. 3
      Increase the heat to medium-high; add the green beans. Saute 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

      Excellent! I could have eaten these for my entire dinner. This recipe is going straight into my best of the best file. I halved the recipe and didn't weigh my shallots..just went by eye. Also, I sliced my shallots instead of just halving them. As a consequence, they didn't need as long to caramalize. I'm fighting the urge to make these right now for breakfast! Made for ZWT 8 France region. Merci!

      This is the perfect side! It has just enough sauce to glaze the shallots and then the green beans. Blanching the haricots verts allowed me to cook them ahead and wait until 5 minutes before serving to finish them and yet retain the bright green color. I paired this side with Easy Baked Cajun Chicken for a perfect dinner, and so easy! Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game.

      These were outstanding! I love green beans and these were scrumptious! I loved the hint of sweetness. These will definitely be made again. Thanks for posting.
