Ready In:




  • Wash and cut end of green beans. Bring to boil a pot of water and salt it as this is the only time to really flavor the green beans -- Boil them for about 8-10 minutes then drain water.
  • In a separate pan -- put olive oil and butter -- medium heat as not to burn. Pour green beans, shallot- sliced thinly, pre-sliced mushrooms and garlic and sautee for about 5 minutes! You can add more garlic if you want!
  • Make sure green beans are still firm.not to mushy. Add some more seasonings to taste after you are finishing the sautee as this will bring out the water from the mushrooms and the sweetness of the shallot !
  • Enjoy!

    A pleasant side! I steamed the green beans for 3 minutes in the microwave while I sauteed the shallot and mushrooms making this a really quick fresh side for any meal. Thanks for the post.

    Great recipe. I used only butter. I cooked the mushrooms, shallots and garlic 5 minutes and then added the green beans and cooked a few minutes more. I don't like my veggies too crunchy. Thanks The Motherchef :) Made for Bargain Basement tag game


Love to cook and experiment in the kitchen with different foods. With 2 growing boys, they eat me out of house and home!! Good to try new things out on them!!
