Quick and Easy Sides: Sautéed Green Beans

This is my lazy, 1 pan method of making green beans. I like to buy the pre-washed packages of haricot verts from HEB.  I can’t remember the last time I bought normal green beans… haricot verts are just so much more tender.

  • 1 package of haricot verts (about 2 handfuls)
  • 1 medium shallot, sliced
  • chicken stock
  • butter (I typically use homemade ghee.)
  • salt and pepper

Heat large pan on medium high. Add green beans. Add ~1/2 cup chicken stock (will submerge about 1/3 to 1/2 of green beans.) Cover and steam until just soft, ~5 min, turning often. Drain out excess liquid. Push beans over to one side, add a pat of butter, melt, then fry shallots until fragrant and soft ~2 min. Mix with green beans. Salt and pepper to taste.

Fee free to use bacon instead of butter.
