Adding the garlic along with the shallots & green beans to the very hot pan resulted in the garlic beginning to burn before the beans got to the "slightly browned and shriveled" stage as described in the recipe. Adding the balsamic vinegar/sugar mixture to the beans during the cooking stage resulted in sadly grey beans. But, they did taste great. I will probably tweak this recipe a little and try again.
