Green Beans with Shallot Mustard Sauce

Happy New Year! As might be obvious, I've been away for the holidays. But now I'm back, and with a few recipes to share. This one was a major hit at Christmas dinner. I used green beans from our garden that I froze last summer.

1/4 butter
1 large shallot, minced
2 tsp spicy brown mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
2-3 lbs green beans, cut in 2-inch lengths (thawed if frozen)

Melt the butter in a small saucepan, then add the shallots and saute gentle for several minutes. Stir in the mustard, then add salt and pepper to taste. Keep sauce warm while you cook the beans.

While making the sauce, steam the green beans until tender. Remove beans to a bowl and toss thoroughly with the sauce. Serve hot.

Serves 6-8.
