French Green Beans with Lemon Brown Butter

From Our Kitchen


1 lb. french green beans (haricots verts), trimmed
3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper


Cook beans in a 2-quart heavy saucepan of salted, boiling water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain beans in a colander.

Wipe out saucepan and cook butter over moderate heat until it turns a deep golden color, about 2 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and remove pan from heat. Add beans, toss well, and season with salt and pepper.
