Make sure you really like vinegar before you make this! My Easter guests and I found this recipe acceptable but too heavy on the vinegar. (Even my sister who likes vinegar found it a bit overpowering.) The bacon was a delicious touch. I doubt I'll make it again but it was worth trying once. Read More

After reading previous reviews I decided to try this with less vinegar. I cut it back to less than a 1/4 cup and the dish still tasted a little too vinegary. Hubby's not a green bean fan and while he did say the the vinegar was a little too overwhelming he did wind up eating seconds. This was an easy dish to prepare and the overall taste was good. I'll try this again with even less vinegar. Read More

I made this for the holiday and no one really liked it. The vinegar was too much. A friend of mine makes this using very little vinegar and she said it tastes much better that way. Read More

My eggs started to curdle too so I ended up starting all over again. Fortunately I had saved my bacon fat. I'll go back to Sweet and Sour Green Beans on this site. Read More
