Steamed Yet Crispy String Beans
Steaming the green beans keeps them tender, while sauteeing them with roasted red peppers and prosciutto builds tons of flavor.
- 4 slices prosciutto, thinly sliced crosswise
- 1 pound haricots verts
- 1 jarred roasted red pepper, minced
- Red pepper flakes
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add prosciutto and saute until crispy, about 2 minutes. Remove to a paper towel. Steam beans over in 1/4 inch water until tender, 3-4 minutes. Drain beans.
Swirl some olive oil in same skillet and add the peppers. Return beans to pan and toss with salt and red pepper flakes. Transfer beans to skillet and top with the crispy prosciutto.
