Sweet-and-Sour Green Beans
3/4 pound(s) green beans
2 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium shallot, minced
2 tablespoon(s) cider vinegar
1 teaspoon(s) sugar
Freshly ground pepper
Place the green beans in a steamer basket set over a large saucepan of boiling water. Steam until bright green and crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
In a medium skillet, heat the oil. Add the shallot and cook over high heat, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the vinegar and sugar; stir to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and add the beans. Season with salt and pepper, toss well, and serve.
