  • Stove
  • Large Skillet
  • Stirring Spoon


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or unsalted butter
  • 2 large shallots thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 pound 12 oz. green beans or French green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Optional additions: garlic powder smoked paprika, parmesan cheese, lemon juice, etc.


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring frequently, until soft and translucent, about 8 minutes. Do not brown.
  • Add the beans, salt, pepper and water; bring to a boil. Cover the skillet, reduce the heat to low, and cook for 8 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and increase the heat to high. Cook, stirring frequently, until the liquid is evaporated, the beans are tender, and the shallots are jammy, about 6 minutes.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt, pepper, and other seasonings if preferred. Serve warm.


French green beans(also called Haricots Verts) are slightly longer and skinnier than regular green beans.
