Rated as 4.63 out of 5 Stars

"Soy sauce and peanut butter flavor these crisp-tender beans. 'They're a nice change from the usual green bean salads and casseroles,' says Robin Joss from Ashburn, Virginia. 'With a sesame seed crunch, this dish always wows guests and brings plenty of recipe requests.'"
