Skillet Braised Tomato Green Beans

This was also for our nice dinner at home. We made these once before and really enjoyed them. DH normally won’t touch green beans but he will devour these. (He also isn’t a huge fan of tomatoes, try to explain that!) We had this with a bbqed steak and Crashed Potatoes.

Skillet Braised Tomato Green Beans
Not sure where I found this recipe.

Ingredients

olive oil
2 shallots, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound green beans, cleaned and trimmed
1 can diced tomatoes (I used one with Italian seasoning cause I was lazy, but usually I add the basil spices on my own)
salt
pepper

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. (I use a skillet that has a lid)
  2. Add the shallot and cook until golden-brown, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add garlic and cook about 30 seconds.
  4. Add diced tomatoes and green beans.
  5. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!

DH and I love these green beans, and they are so easy and quick!
