Caramelized Haricots Verts with Pearl Onions

(French Green Beans)
  • 1 Bag of Private Selection French Green Beans
  • 1/2 Bag of Pearl Onions from Produce Section, Peeled & Sliced in Half
  • 2 Tablespoons of Butter
  • Salt (Kosher or Sea Salt are best)
  • Sugar ( I prefer Turbinado)
  1. Heat a large skillet with the butter over medium high.
  2. Add the pearl onions face down.
  3. Add the green beans.  Season with salt and sugar.  (About a teaspoon each)
  4. Stir occasionally, but not too often.  The key is to let them sit long enough to brown, without burning.  The more you stir, the less browning occurs.  Find a balance.
  5. Add more butter on top if needed and stir.
