    Cookgirl's Note:

    A recipe I found on the floor of a department store while shopping. The Mcllhenny Company, they of celebrated Tabasco fame, included for promotion a free recipe with the purchase of a men's necktie. I have been making this every Thanksgiving for close to ten years now. Can be made vegetarian with the use of vegie soysage or "facon."

    1. 1
      Steam the green beans until just done but still maintaining their bright green color. Drain. Keep warm.
    2. 2
      In the meantime, in a small pan over medium-high heat cook the salt pork or bacon until crisp. Reserve the fat. (If using vegetarian bacon, you'll need to add a bit of oil to the pan for frying.).
    3. 3
      Reduce heat, add the minced celery stalks and cook about 2 minutes; adding the garlic and cooking another minute longer. Stir in vinegar, Dijon mustard, sugar and TABASCO sauce. Heat through.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat; stir in celery leaves.
    5. 5
      Toss with beans to coat. Season with salt and pepper and adjust seasonings if necessary.

      I love when you try a recipe and it delivers much more than you expected. This was absolutely delicious! I made this with bacon, which went well with the mustard and sugar to make a tangy, sweet-and-sour-ish sauce. I can see where this would be a nice change of pace on the Thanksgiving table, and I will look forward to making it again then. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT 9.

      Really loved these green beans!!! I scaled back the recipe to 1/2, using 2 pieces of bacon, one can of "French Style" green beans, so didn't bother with steaming the beans, but then followed as written. I was really skeptical about adding the celery and leaves but found out that I loved this added flavor to the beans then along with the vinegar and hot sauce, yummy!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9.
