I was in the mood for steak and potatoes recently and decided to make some tasty green beans with mushrooms and shallots as the side dish. It was an extremely easy recipe to make, had very little cleanup, and tasted fantastic. They went really well with flank steak and mashed potatoes and gravy and were a huge hit with my entire family. I will be making these green beans over and over again.
Green Beans with Mushrooms and Shallots:
- Fresh green beans, ends trimmed
- 2 tsp olive oil
- Button mushrooms, sliced
- 1/2 a small shallot, sliced into thin rings
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
How to Make Green Beans with Mushrooms and Shallots
Add the green beans to a pot of boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking and to retain the bright green color. Set aside.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and let them cook (without stirring) for 3-4 minutes; stir and add the shallots to the skillet. Cook the shallots and mushrooms for 2 minutes before adding the minced garlic and green beans. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute or until the green beans are nice and hot. Season with sea salt and pepper, to taste. Enjoy.
