Caramelized Onion Green Beans (Version 2)

Slow cooking releases the incomparable flavor of caramelized onions. Mix with quickly cooked green beans for a sensational side. Serve the beans with Chicken Croquettes and Mashed Potatoes and Parsnips as Rach did for her sister’s birthday bash.


  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
  • Salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • Pepper


In a deep skillet, bring 2-3 inches of water to a boil. Add the beans, season with salt and par-boil for 3-5 minutes depending on thickness of the beans. Cool under cold running water, reserve in strainer.

Return the pan to the stovetop and melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and stir; reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, to caramelize the onion, 25-30 minutes. Reduce the heat if they brown too quickly at the edges. Add the stock and beans and turn with tongs to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
