oh my!, these are really, really good. I used fresh green beans and fresh garlic. I cut the sugar in half and it was fine(always find recipes to be to sweet). I will be making these again and they will show up on the holiday table. Caught my son dipping bread in the sauce. Thanks for sharing. YUM, YUM!!
I agree with SWEETJAM who previously reviewed this recipe making 2 alterations. With the reduction in sugar (used 1/2 of what the recipe called for) and using 1 fresh minced clove of garlic, this was a HUGE hit at dinner last night. Way better than I expected.
GREAT recipe! I cut the sugar amount in half like others, and it worked great. However, by drizzling the sauce on top of everything, it made some bites unevenly stronger than the others. Maybe you could mix the beans, sauce and bacon together before baking and that would help? Overall, a great recipe that I will use again.
Oh. My. God. So I have to be honest. I picked this recipe over the various others because of the fact that you bake it. This is much easier when making a large Christmas dinner. I was VERY worried how it would taste, the brown sugar part was making everyone make faces. So I took the suggestion of others and halved the brown sugar. As I was worried about the sauce permeating through all the beans, I also added 50% more sauce. Turns out this second part was not needed, but taking the brown sugar down by half was. IT WAS PERFECT. Everyone LOVED it. The only other changes I made was that I did cut the bacon into smaller pieces before microwaving, but I still layed it on top, and used enough to cover the beans. I also used frozen beans, and 4 bags worked well. We will definitely be using this recipe again!
Huge disappointment. 40 min @ 350 = extremely over cooked beans and I used fresh beans.Can't imagine what canned beans would have been like since are already partially cooked.I used half the sugar and they were way too sweet. Used only 5 tsp soya 7 would have been too much. Used one clove fresh minced garlic; that was good. Overall these beans had a nice flavour but they were overcooked too sweet and too greasy. If I tried this recipe again I would make the sauce with less sugar less soya and less butter I would steam the beans cook the bacon with the garlic make the sauce and pour it over the cooked beans. But guess that would be a whole new recipe.
Loved these!! I used a pound of fresh green beans, just covered the beans when I baked, diced up the bacon and fried it then added a little bit of butter to the bacon grease so it would equal 1/4 c. I took the suggestions of cutting the sugar in half and then I just added the soy sauce slowly until I liked the flavor. Also used minced garlic instead of the powder. I'll make these again.
really good! I halved the recipe for 3 people, 5 servings. I cooked the bacon about 1/2 way in a pan, then cut into smaller pieces, added to 2 cans of green beans into a 8x8 baking dish, then tossed to coat with the sauce. I tasted a bean 1/2 way thru cooking and added more soy sauce to make it less sweet. My boyfriend really liked, and ate the extras :)
This is one of the best green bean recipes I have ever tasted. I cook for a homeless shelter once a month and I made these beans to go with their meal and everyone loved them. I also have made them for a church potluck and there wasn't a single bean left. The only thing I do differently with the recipe is that I completely cook the bacon ahead of time, crumble it and add it to the green beans before I pour the butter mixture over them. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
