Excellent. I've never used the vinegar in my green beans and really like the additional flavor. This went very well with roast beef, potatoes and carrots. Thanks for sharing. :)

Delicious! I added a small diced potato just because it sounded good to me :-) I also love making fresh green beans this way, with some extra bacon.

Very nice, and we were quite happy with the amount of vinegar, it added a nice tang that I really enjoyed. I used fresh beans, and I think I had a bit too much bacon... but we like bacon! Easy to prepare, a lovely way to prepare a favourite vegetable! Thanks, diner!

I loved the flavor of this! I often make green beans in a similar way using fresh beans. I may continue to do that in the future since the canned beans almost cooked into a mush trying to cook the vinegar out. I feel that fresh beans would hold their shape better. The flavor was wonderful though, and I would suggest that this recipe serves no more than 2 people in a realistic situation. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue

I made this for the guys last night and they both gave it 4 stars. "Really good" and "They are great with the pork chops" were heard at the table. The recipe is certainly easy to make. I used 1 1/2 tbsp of the vinegar, one thought it was too heavy and the other said it was just right. They both said that they would be happy to have then again. Thanks Diner for an easy veggie that the men will eat!

Very good and easy! I used only 1 1/2 T of the apple cider vinegar and that was perfect for us. I served this with "Chicken Cutlets With Pecans". Thanks for sharing!

These just didn't do it for me. . .sorry! I love all the ingredients, just not all together. They were a bit bland (although vinegary), so I added a little seasoning salt and pepper which did help. Only used 1 tbsp vinegar and frozen french cut beans. Made for ZWT4.

Made these for dinner last nite and we really enjoyed them. I did use diced country ham in place of the bacon and we thought that added a nice flavour also. I love using ACV in recipes and thought it added a great zap of flavour to the beans. I also used a flat italian green bean and thought it absorbed the flavour well. Made for ZWT4.
