Here is a delicious side dish that goes great with steak. The shallots and garlic start to caramelize adding a depth to the dish. These green beans certainly are not your typical beans. If you really want to add something to dish roast some cherry tomatoes along with the beans, they add a great burst of flavor. I hope you enjoy!
- 1 lb string bean, trimmed and washed
- 2 shallots, sliced
- 3 garlic cloves, sliced
- 1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 3 slices bacon, crisped and crumbled (optional)

I enjoyed the extra oomph of shallot, garlic and bacon. Best way to dress up green beans! Made for PAC Spring 2010.
Delicious! Incredible flavor combination! I followed the recipe except I omitted the optional cherry tomatoes as I didn't have any. The shallots and garlic caramelized just as promised. We had the left over tonight which I reheated in the microwave for 1.5 minutes and I thought they were even better as the flavors melded with the beans even more! Thanks for posting such as wonderful and easy side dish!
Made this as a side to Delicious Lemon-Dill Chicken and loved it. Used the option of adding cherry tomatoes fresh from the garden and used sweet onion instead of shallots as that's what I had and it was perfect. The spices were a nice blend and I felt the tomatoes really added that extra flavor and I like that the beans are not overcooked and to soft. The added benefit of being so easy to put together and the colors so bright and attractive made this an even better recipe. Thanks so much for posting. Made for PAC Fall - 09
