Sautéed String Beans + Crispy Shallots

Our sautéed string beans provide the perfect amount of texture and crunch and are a great side to our potstickers.


Serves: 4

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes


3/4 cup olive oil

3 large shallots, thinly sliced

Corn starch, for dusting

2 pounds green beans, trimmed

2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, plus more for seasoning

Flaky sea salt

Heat ½ cup of oil in a pan. Dust shallots in corn starch and working in batches fry shallots in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook, swirling the skillet occasionally, until shallots are lightly browned and starting to crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer shallots to a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.

Add remaining oil to the pan. Sauté garlic until lightly brown, about 2 minutes. Add green beans and sauté, about 5-7 minutes. Add squeezed lemon juice.

Transfer to a platter and top with crispy shallots and sea salt.
