Garlic Butter Green Beans

This is one of my fall back sides. If I’m cooking something and can’t figure out what to make to go with it this is always and option. And it’s super easy and super good to boot.

You will need:
2 bags of greens beans. (I had already opened one when I remembered to take the pic.)
½ tsp minced Garlic
1 small onion or 1 medium shallot
Salt and pepper

Boil green beans in water until they reach the desired consistency. While the beans are cooking dice the onion/shallot finely. When the beans are done, drain them in a colander in the sink. Don’t rinse with cold water.

In the pot that you boiled the beans in melt as much butter as you would like. I usually end up using about 2 tbsp of butter. Add the onion/shallot and stir constantly until the butter just barely begins to brown. Add the garlic and sauté for about 30-60 seconds more. Remove from heat. Add the drained beans to the pot and toss with the butter and salt and pepper and serve.

    i love green beans, especially fresh from the garden. i also love garlic. and butter. this is clearly a winning side dish, although i might be tempted to just consume the entire pot in lieu of a complete dinner. 🙂
