My husband and I love this recipe. We have had them many many times for dinner so far and they have been great and tasty. The second time I added Real Bacon Bits and it went very well with the recipe. Now we don't ever have regular green beans anymore and we've gotten so use to making the recipe that we make it without measuring anything. My husband made these for Thanksgivings and our guests also loved them. This recipe has become a regular in our house. Read More

I was looking for something to add to my canned green beans that didn't overpower but gave good flavor! I'll be making this recipe again! Read More

I thought that these were okay I drained them before serving and they went over well with the true test "picky girl" she liked them a lot. I think that I would 1/2 the soy & Worcestershire sauces next time. Don't add any salt as they have plenty as it is. Thanks Denise;) Read More

We like green beans fresh frozen & canned. I have made this several times using all three types. Each time someone asks me for the recipe. This is great for a pot luck dish. A nice twist for green beans. Read More

These just have a nice different flavor. The first time I made them I kept thinking I wish more of the flavor went through the beans. Well the next time I made them I put the beans in a shallow container poured the liquid on sealed and let them marinate in the refrigerator for several hours. Great flavor. One thing I did differently. I don't use bouillon cubes so used a teaspoon of beef soup base instead. Read More

I've made this several times now and I LOVE it!!! The only change I made was using Dale's seasoning instead of Worchestershire sauce. I've also used this on purple hull peas and it turned out great!!! Thanks so much for the recipe it will be staple in my home for years to come! UPDATE: I use this recipe constantly and wanted to come back to say that if you're reading this you should definitely try it! It's great! Read More
