Expert Tips

Shallots look like mini onions and taste like a mild mix of garlic and onion. You can usually find them near the onions in the produce section of the supermarket.

In 15 minutes, cook fresh green beans and coat them with a citrus butter sauce - a wonderful side dish!

You can substitute 1/4 cup finely chopped onion for the shallots.

Directions

  • 1 In 4-quart Dutch oven, heat 1 to 2 inches water to boiling. Add beans; boil uncovered 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain; return to Dutch oven.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add shallots; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender. Stir in sugar. Cook 2 to 3 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until shallots are glazed and brown. Stir in lemon juice, dill weed and salt.
  • 3 Add shallot mixture to green beans; toss to coat.

In 15 minutes, cook fresh green beans and coat them with a citrus butter sauce - a wonderful side dish!
