Make French Cut Green Beans with Shallots with Hubert Keller


  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed, cut to fit feed tube horizontally
  • 2 large shallots, peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

  2. Switch to a metal blade, and place shallot in feed tube for 5 seconds, or until finely chopped.
