Sauteed Garlic Green Beans Recipe @pinch

Garlic and onion add delicious flavor to these sauteed green beans. We loved the tang from the vinegar and the slight crunch of the green beans. You will never want to make canned green beans as a side dish again. These fresh green beans are easy to prepare and so tasty. We grow Italian green beans each year and I love to saute them in a pan with olive oil, onions, and lots of garlic! Of course, this recipe works with string beans or asparagus as well!

Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Vegetables Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 3 clove(s) garlic
  • diced slightly thick
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • diced
  • 1 bunch(es) fresh green beans (I used Italian green beans in my picture)
  • 1-2 tablespoon(s) extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 2 tablespoon(s) garlic red wine vinegar (or balsamic vinegar)
  • more or less to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) season to taste with coarse sea salt (or regular salt if that is all you have)
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) coarse ground pepper (or regular ground pepper) to taste
Intructions :
  • Clean green beans and cut them into 2-3 inch lengths. Chop onion and garlic and heat extra virgin olive oil (or vegetable oil if you don't have any) in a large skillet on medium heat. Place garlic and onion in the pan and saute for a minute or two
  • just until they begin to turn translucent (I add some salt and pepper to the onions & garlic to season them also).
  • Add the green beans to the pan. Sprinkle some balsamic vinegar or garlic red wine vinegar on top. Season to taste with sea salt and coarse ground pepper. Toss to coat well.
  • Cover with a lid
  • turn down heat to medium/low and continue to simmer for about 20-25 minutes
  • tossing occasionally to cook evenly.
  • The green beans are done when they are tender. Top with dots of butter
  • toss and they are ready to serve. These are delicious when served alone as an appetizer or with just about anything else as a side dish! ]
