  1. Place the oil and the green beans in a skillet that has a lid. Begin cooking with the lid on.

  2. While the green beans cook, chop the garlic and shallots.

  3. Add the shallots to the pan and cook until they are browned. Then toss in the garlic and continue to cook until they just start to turn a very light brown. (Do not burn your garlic!!)

  4. Cook with lid on, but stir frequently. Cook until the beans reach the level of doneness you like.

  5. At the very end, just before you turn off the heat, stir in the parsley.

  6. Note: The garlic and shallots should become very brown. Not burnt, but very brown. Keep the heat more at the medium level to avoid burning and add oil if necessary.
