Pan Charred Green Beans with Tarragon

     If you remotely like green beans, you will LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe !!!!  Green beans were one of my favorites before and now I have the perfect recipe to have every couple weeks. It also gave me a great appreciation of Tarragon, and a new commitment to try more recipes with Tarragon !!!  The whole family liked it as well !!!  #WINNING   Be looking for a Tuna Tarragon recipe very soon ...  ;)

8oz washed and trimmed fresh green beans
1 1/2 teaspoon butter
1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar
2 teaspoons dried Tarragon
Light Salt to taste

     Heat medium , heavy skillet ( do not use a nonstick skillet for this) over high heat for 2 minutes.  Coat pan with cooking spray.  Immediately add green beans to pan, shaking them into a single layer; cook, without stirring, 2 minutes or until beans are very lightly charred.  Cook beans 5 more minutes or until crisp-tender and evenly charred, tossing occasionally.  Remove pan from heat.  Let beans rest for 1 minute.  Add butter; toss until butter melts and coats beans.  Add vinegar; toss.  Turn on heat if necessary to evaporate most of liquid.  Sprinkle beans with tarragon and salt; toss.  Serve immediately. This is a quick way to have high pitched flavored green beans, nutritional stats are for a fourth of the recipe~ 33 calories, 4gms carbs, 1 gm protein, and 2gms fiber.   Enjoy  ;)
