Ready in 45 minutes
This is a very easy, but tasty side dish to add to your holiday table. It is also great year-round alongside chicken or beef.
Cook green beans in boiling water 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp-tender. Plunge beans in ice water to stop the cooking process; drain and set aside.
Heat oil in a large skillet or saute pan over medium heat; add onion and garlic, and saute 15 to 20 minutes or until tender and onion starts to caramelize. Stir in green beans, salt and pepper; saute 2 to 3 minutes or until beans are heated. Serve hot.
Make Ahead: Place cooked beans in a large zip-top plastic bag, and store in refrigerator up to 1 day. When ready to use, simply toss in with caramelized onions and saute until warm.
pizzau 3y agoMade this tonight. Very good flavor; would make again. I stopped before heating the green beans in the onions and garlic and did this just before serving. The green beans stayed nice and crisp.
canyoncritter 3y agoVery fast and simple way to add a little zip to your green beans. I used drained can green beans and it worked great. Of course fresh are always better, but works in a pinch. Thank you for sharing!

Pinkifuzz 5y agoLoved it!! I wanted to try something new but was afraid the kids would not want to eat them. I was so wrong. The kids ate them faster than I could, even the two year old. I will be making this often!!
