This is a different way to prepare green beans instead of just plain old beans. We were pleasantly surprised by the taste, and I would serve it with more of a plain type meat like breaded pork chops, or breaded chicken because it has its own distinctive taste. This came from a 1970's cookbook called "Cooking for Two".

Easy, quick, good! Made recipe as written, and green beans ended up more cooked than we usually prefer, but these took almost no time at all. DH is not a big fan of mustard on his green beans, but this was not overwhelming. The crumbled corn flakes made an excellent topping. Thanks for posting this recipe, justme #3. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

What a nice way to spruce up regular green beans! I enjoy finding recipes that use regular ingredients to enhance a simple dish. I used red pepper flakes in place of regular pepper. Thanks for sharing.

I really enjoyed this quick and easy bean recipe! I used fresh green beans cooked until just tender, drained and added the sauce ingredients, tossed the beans a few times and they were ready to serve! Prepared for the I Recommend Tag game 8/08
