Green Beans with Caramelized Onion

green beans with caramelized onion

This was an easy way to add a little flavor to my green beans!  I admit that I did not have any fresh green beans so I used frozen.  But they tasted great nonetheless!

1 lb. fresh green beans

2 medium sweet onions

2 T. butter or margarine

2 T. brown sugar

1 to 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar (optional)

Cook green beans in boiling water until tender and drain.  Cut onions into thin slices and cut each slice in half.  Cook onion in non-stick skillet in a little oil over medium heat for 8 minutes, stirring often.  Reduce heat and stir in brown sugar and butter.  Add green beans and cook 5 minutes or until heated.  Toss with vinegar if desired.
