Blistered Green Beans
1 pound fresh green beans, cleaned
1/2 cup slivered red onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 c water
Salt and pepper to taste
In heavy skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil until it starts to shimmer. Add half of green beans and saute several minutes. As beans begin to blister and skin darkens, turn beans with tongs and add half of onion and garlic. Continue to saute until onions begin to tenderize. Reduce heat to medium. Add salt and pepper and 1/4 cup water. Cover skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan and place in serving dish.
Repeat the process with remaining beans. Cooking in batches makes sure each bean gets the appropriate time on the high heat to blister.
Add butter to beans and serving dish and toss to coat.
Feel free to add, change or adjust seasonings to taste. We often like a bit of coconut aminos and then sprinkle with sesame seeds for an asian flair.
Serves 6 approximately 1/2 cup per serving.
