Green Beans with Caramelized Red Onions
2 pounds green beans, trimmed
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
Salt and Pepper to taste
1. Carefully drop green beans into a 3-quart pot of heavily salted boiling water. Cook beans until crisp-tender and bright green, about 4 minutes. Drain, pat dry with paper towels and set aside.
2. Heat butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once butter is melted, add red onion slices and cook, stirring frequently, until onions begin to brown, about 8-10 minutes.
3. Add green beans to pan, stirring until coated and heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
