Marjoram Green Beans

Rated as 3.75 out of 5 Stars

"This easy-to-do vegetable dish becomes memorable with the addition of marjoram. The taste is very subtle, yet distinctive. I like to fix beans this way for special dinners, since the bright green is so pretty on the plate. -Charlene Griffin, Minocqua, Wisconsin"

I followed the recipe to a T and they were just ok at best. The marjoram didn't lend much flavor to the overall dish. My beans were fresh as fresh can be from a grocery store and the beans thems...

This was very good. I used canned green beans and was generous with the marjoram. A nice way to dress up plain old canned green beans. I'll make this again. Thanks!

I don't really measure ingredients when I make this, but I love the addition of marjoram to green beans. I usually add a few shakes of garlic powder as well. Simple and tasty.
