1. To make the sauteed green beans: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add fresh green beans and cook for one minute. Remove the green beans out of the water and soak them in a bowl of ice-cold water to stop the cooking. Drain green beans and set them aside.

2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 5-8 minutes until soft. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally until onions are caramelized – about 15 minutes. Pour in 1/4 cup of broth to deglaze if your pan gets too dry, and keep stirring until onions are browned. Stir in fresh minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Turn off the heat and set aside.

3. Allow your skillet to cool enough so you can wipe out the excess fat. Return the skillet to the stove over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon butter. When hot, add the blanched green beans, red pepper flakes, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until heated through, about 1-2 minutes. Top with the French onion and serve the sauteed green beans immediately. Enjoy! ❤️
