DIRECTIONS

  • Remove stem ends from beans, put beans in a bowl and cover with water. Set aside until water comes to room temperature.
  • Drain beans, then cook in a gallon of boiling salted water until done, 3 to 5 minutes depending on thickness. Beans are done when they still have a slight raw flavor but are crisp and bright green.
  • As soon as beans are done, remove from pot and shock in ice water. Drain, and if desired, refrigerate until ready to use.
  • To prepare: Place beans and remaining ingredients in a large saute pan and place over medium-high heat.
  • Saute, stirring occasionally, until water is evaporated and butter coats beans and cooks shallots, about 2 minutes.
  • Continue sauteing 1 to 2 minutes (possibly longer if beans are cold from the refrigerator) or until beans are heated through. Adjust seasoning to taste ans serve.
