  1. Heat olive oil in a 10-inch saute pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until it starts to become translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add vinegar and scrape and stir the brown bits from the pan.
  2. Add green beans, butter, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper; toss several times to mix with onions and garlic. Cook until beans are heated through and just start to lose their bright green color, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use frozen beans instead of fresh, but don't use canned beans. If using frozen, you may need to cook them a few minutes longer.

Made as written and these turned out really good. They were very spicy but good. I love that the recipe didn't call for over-cooking the beans like most do.
