GREAT RECIPE--I 'LOVE' GREEN BEANS--WITH BACON FLAVORING--& THE 'OTHER' INGRED. ONLY 'ADD' TO THE RECIPE! Thank you sooo much! :) Have a good day!
Nice bean dish. I used frozen whole beans, omitted the water, added all of the ingredients, and covered/simmered on low until done-no problems. Thank You MrsEL-
This was a nice side dish for our dinner. We could taste the mustard and brown sugar without them being overpowering. I used fresh beans and only cooked them initially for a few minutes and rinsed them under cold water. After cooking them later, they still had some crisp to them (since we don't like mushy vegetables). We will have this easy, tasty recipe again.
