How to Make Green Beans Yankle Style
- 1Wash and string your beans if needed. Drain. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Meanwhile, set a large pot of water on the stove to boil.
- 2When water reaches a boil, add the beans. Cook for 7-8 minutes. Remove from stove, and drain, then plunge immediately into ice water. This step causes the beans to retain the bright color, while stopping further cooking.
- 3Drain once again, and dry beans on paper towels. While the green beans are drying, warm oil in a large skillet.Add shallots, and sauté until soften, and a light brown, about 7 minutes. Add Green Beans and cook about two minutes, until beans are heated through. Sprinkle on toasted almonds, add a pinch or two of salt, and serve.
- 4Note: I prefer to toast my own almonds. Simply heat your large skillet on medium heat, then add almonds, stirring constantly, until they turn a lovely golden around the edges. Then transfer them to a dish for future use. You will then proceed to sauté the shallots in the same skillet.
