Green Beans with Caramelized Pecans

Green beans have a certain suave, slender elegance that makes them a classic accompaniment. But too often, they get short shrift: a quick drizzle of butter, a squirt of lemon, and onto the table they go. We suggest you coddle them a little this year. Try tossing them in a hot skillet with shallots and pecans that get caramelized in buttery brown sugar, and you’ll see just how special green beans can be.
