Garlicky Green Beans with Crispy Onions

Makes: 6 servings
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 large yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  •  2 tablespoons panko
  •  ½ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb green beans, trimmed
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup Parmesan

Directions
In a large mixing bowl, toss the onions with flour, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Shake onions in your hand to discard excess flour.

Heat ½-inch of oil in a 12-inch cast iron skillet until very hot. You can drop a splash of water in to test, if it’s hot enough the water will hiss.

Add onions a handful at a time and fry until a light golden brown. Remove with a large slotted spoon, shaking off a bit of oil and spread on paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining onions. Set aside until needed.

Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Melt butter with garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add green beans and broth. Season with salt and pepper.

Cover with lid to steam, cook until al dente, about 5-7 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan and cover again until melted.

Top with onions and serve immediately.
