Pan-charred green beans with Tarragon

(Cooking Light, April 2014)


  • 8 ounces fresh green beans washed and trimmed
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Heat a medium, heavy skillet (not non-stick) over high heat for 2 minutes. (Cast iron would work well)
  2. Coat pan with cooking spray. Immediately add beans to pan, shaking them into a single layer; cook without stirring 2 minutes or until beans are very lightly charred. Cook for about 5 more minutes or until crisp-tender and evenly charred, tossing occasionally.
  3. Remove pan from heat. After resting beans for 1 minute, add butter, tossing to melt and coat, and then add vinegar and toss to coat.
  4. Add tarragon and salt, toss to mix.
