  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Place green beans in the water, and cook about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, and drain in a colander. Place under cold water until no longer hot. Drain, and pat dry.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic, and saute until onion is tender. Melt remaining butter in the skillet, and mix in the green beans. Stir in the vinegar and broth. Season with salt and pepper. Mix in cilantro. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes, or until green beans are tender.

I used white onions cut in rings & skipped the boiling step. I prefer my veggies with a little texture to them. I sauteed them for about 8 minutes covered and completely ignored them the whole...

BTW, I forgot to mention, they aren't Georgia Green Beans as in the American South, but rather, from the country in Eastern Europe. Sorry about the confusion!

I am not a picky eater at all and neither is my roomate, i can't believe this is a 5 star recipe, these were horrible, will def not make again, they have a very bland strange taste to them, go o...
