Dragon's Tongue Beans with Caramelized Onions


1 lb Dragon's Tongue beans, stem ends popped off

2 T butter

2 medium or 1 large onion, sliced as thinly as possible

1 C chicken or vegetable stock (or water)

1 1/2 T sugar

1 T red wine vinegar

salt and pepper to taste


1Cook beans in boiling salted water until tender, approx. 5 minutes. Drain and immerse in ice water to stop the cooking (this will ensure your beans stay crisp and delightful).

2 Melt butter in skillet over medium flame. Stir in onions and cook them slowly until very wilted and deepened in color, 15 or so minutes.

3 Deglaze pan with stock or water and boil for 5 minutes to reduce and concentrate flavors. Stir in sugar and vinegar. Add beans to the onions and heat through (just a minute or two). Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
