How to make it

  • Start by bringing a pot of water to a boil. Boil the beans for about 4 minutes then remove them to a bowl of ice water, then transfer to a dish towel to dry off.
  • Heat the oil in a pan. Add the shallots and cook for 1-2 minutes then add the garlic and saute until tender. Pour in the vinegar and let simmer about 30 seconds then add in the green beans. Let cook a couple of minutes until the beans are still slightly crisp but cooked. Add your preferred amount of salt and pepper.

    Fresh green beans are a favorite vegetable around here and I often make them as directed above, but using only garlic and shallots. The additon of sweet balsamic vinegar in this recipe took them over the top and I loved the flavor combination! I blanched the beans well ahead of time and set them on the side so they would be ready to go when it was time to make them and that was a real time saver. We like our vegetables tender-crisp and I had to blanch and cook the beans longer than the times stated in the recipe, but that could be because they were a little thicker than usual. I want to try this recipe again with haricots verts (thin French green beans) to see if they cook faster. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Mommyluvs2cook! It really dressed up our meatloaf dinner last night :) Posted to the I Made It group on January 19, 2016: Balsamic Green Beans
