Green beans Paprika


2 quarts water

1 tsp salt, plus an additional ½ tsp

1 lb green beans, cut

1 C sour cream

4 Tbsp butter

¾ C onion, chopped fine

2 Tbsp flour

1 Tbsp paprika (preferably sweet Hungarian)

Bring water and 1 tsp salt to boil in a stock pot, drop in beans by handfuls, return to a boil, reduce heat to medium, cook beans just until tender (do not overcook), and drain beans immediately. Melt butter in a medium-sized saucepan, add onions, cook until translucent, remove from heat, and stir in paprika until onions are coated. Beat flour into sour cream, stir mixture into saucepan with onions, and add remaining ½ tsp salt. Simmer 4-5 minutes or until sauce is smooth, gently stir in beans, and simmer about 5 minutes longer or until heated through.
