  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed and halved

  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar


  1. In a large skillet, bring 1 cup water, oil, salt, and pepper to a simmer over medium heat.

  2. Add green beans and onion. Cover, and cook until beans are crisp-tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
