Method

  1. Steam or boil the beans for 6-8 mins, until just tender. Drain and cool under running cold water. Pat dry with kitchen paper.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the eggs for 4 mins, then cool under running cold water. Crack and remove the shells.
  3. Whisk together the vinegar, mustard, sugar, oil and a little salt and pepper in a small bowl. Divide the beans between 6 plates. Halve the eggs and set one half on each pile of beans, topped with a couple of anchovy halves. Drizzle over the dressing and some freshly milled black pepper, then serve.
