DIRECTIONS

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook, uncovered, until fork-tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain.
  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the sugar over the shallots and cook 1 minute longer until the sugar carmelizes. Be careful not to let it burn.
  • Add the water. Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes. Dissolve the cornstarch in the vinegar and add it to the shallots. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  • Add the green beans to the shallots, mix well, and heat through. Adjust the seasoning. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
