Haricots Verts With Carmelized Shallots

Haricots Verts With Carmelized Shallots created by LifeIsGood

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!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    This was SO easy but so delicious and looked so much fancier than I would have guessed. Nice company dish. Can cook the beans and carmelize the onions ahead of time. Then at the last few minutes just put them together in the skillet and warm through. Perfect!

    Very good and easy vegetable recipe. I used balsamic vinegar.

    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 Recipe#257097 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.
