Green Beans with Caramelized Shallots

Serves 8-10 servings

Originally aired

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 pounds haricots verts or thin green beans, trimmed
  • Salt 
  • 4 tablespoons butter 
  • 6 large shallots, chopped 
  • 1 cup chicken stock 
  • Fine ground black pepper 
PREPARATION

Bring a couple inches of water to boil in a large shallow pan; salt water and cook green beans 3-4 minutes to tender-crisp. Cold-shock beans in ice water and drain well; reserve.  

Heat butter in a large, deep skillet with a lid over medium heat. When butter melts and foams, add the shallots and cook gently 10-15 minutes partially covered to very tender. Add stock and heat through. Turn off heat and cool; add beans to pan.

When you are ready to serve, reheat over medium heat and toss with tongs to heat the beans through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
