How to make it
- Thaw green beans if frozen.
- Trim and set aside.
- Add salt to 1 gallon cold water and bring to a boil.
- Add the beans all at once, and cook for 30 to 45 seconds.
- Remove from the water and immediately put into ice water.
- Remove beans from ice water as soon as they're cold.
- Heat the oil in a large saute pan until almost smoking.
- Add the onions and saute until the onions turn a deep caramelized brown color.
- Add the green beans to the onions, and stir until beans are hot and thoroughly mixed with the onions.
- Transfer to a serving platter, top with hot mushroom sauce, garnish with fresh parsley, and serve.
- Wild Mushroom Sauce:
- Saute the onion and wild mushrooms in butter until soft but not browned.
- Blend in the flour and stir until evenly moist.
- Add the milk in stages, whisking after each addition, until smooth and lump-free.
- Add the wine, thyme and oregano; simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes.
- Stir in the heavy cream and tabasco.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Makes about 5 cups.
