The flavor of this was really good. The beef ended up overcooked. One thing that I would change is to brown the beef in two batches. I used frozen green beans that were not thawed, so I think heating them contributed to the overcooking problem also. I think the flavor was fine, so if I had to do that again I would make sure the green beans were thawed first to avoid overcooking the rest of the dish.
