3    pounds green beans

1    each red pepper — 1/4″ dice

1    each onion — 1/4″ dice

2    tablespoons olive oil

2    tablespoons butter

First we need to clean and prepare the beans by blanching them. Clean the green beans and set aside. Dice the red pepper and onion separately and set aside. In a large saucepan, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil. At the boil, add the green beans and blanch for 2 – 3 minutes or until tender. Drain the green beans and rise under cold water for 2 minutes. Set aside. This can be done the day before. Heat a large sauté pan over medium high heat. Add the butter and olive oil to the pan. Next, add the diced onions and red peppers. Sauté until the onions are translucent. Add the blanched green beans and cook until heated through. Transfer the green beans to a serving dish and serve hot.
