  1. In a large pot bring salted water to a boil. Carefully drop, by handfuls, green beans into boiling water. Return water to a boil for 5 minutes. Immediately drain the beans and plunge them into ice water for 5 minutes. Drain and wrap in a clean cloth; set aside.
  2. In the same pot heat butter over medium heat. Lightly brown the garlic. Remove from heat and set aside for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove the garlic from the butter, and discard it. To the garlic flavored butter add onions and thyme. Cover the pot and braise the onion over medium heat for 5 minutes, or until soft and transparent. Increase the heat to medium-high, uncover the pot and slightly caramelize the onion.
  4. Stir the green beans into the pot. After 1 to 2 minutes, de glaze the pot with red wine vinegar. Season to taste with sea salt, pepper and nutmeg. Sprinkle with parsley.

Oh my, this recipe is my absolute favorite recipe for green beans EVER! While the green beans are boiling, I saute the garlic and red onions in butter, then add the thyme. I don't discard the ...

Keep to the cooking times exactly on this or you will risk soggy beans. I tread the line very closely, but they turned out very tasty!

My husband and I love those little green beans anyway, but this recipe makes them taste wonderful. We try to use the fresh herbs when we have them. Thanks -- we have already made this twice in...

These went over very well, and were good--but I don't know if they justify the time spent making them.

Well, this deffinetly takes a little longer then the usual side dishes I make, but it turned out very tasty. We did enjoy it :)

Five star recipe that allows the taste of fresh green beans to shine. Prepare green beans ahead as suggested by another cook for ease of preparation if you wish. If you have fresh thyme add to...

This is really an wonderful recipe for green beans. I like the simplicity of it--and it doesn't cover up the fresh bean taste. Try it!

Delicious. Made no changes to this recipe. Will definitely make these again. Thanks!
