2 TBSP butter
1 large sweet onion (halved, sliced and separated)
1 1/2 lbs. fresh green beans (washed, tips cut/discarded, and halved)
cider vinegar (optional)
chicken broth (optional)
In a skillet over medium heat add butter and sliced onions--cook/stir until onions are tender. At the same time in a pot of boiling salted water add the halved green beans--cook until done to your liking. Drain the green beans and return them to the pot. Add the onions to the green beans, and salt/pepper to your taste--toss to coat. Spread the green bean mixture on a serving plate. Optional--once the mixture is on the serving plate, drizzle with cider vinegar. For more flavor, you can cook the green beans in chicken broth instead of water.
