I cut this in half and used a 12 oz bag of prewashed and trimmed green beans to save time. I blanched these in boiling water until crisp tender (about 3 minutes), drained them, and immersed in a bowl of ice water for a bit. After draining them, I threw them in a ziploc bag for later. Diced the shallots and red pepper and threw them in frig for later as well. This made last minute prep about 4 minutes total, which is great if you're entertaining or just want to make things ahead. I simply loved the fresh taste of this recipe! The red pepper and garlic powder give those 'ol green beans some zip!
This bean recipe is sooo good!! We served as a side to a peppercorn roasted pork tenderloin and halved it to suit just the two of us. We thought it had great flavor and was easy to prep. We boiled longer than the 3-4 mins (more like 7 or 8) because we like our beans softer. We would definitely make this recipe again. It is very versatile. Thanks!
