Thanks for posting Chris! An oldie but goodie recipe. These green beans were fab! The whole family loved them. Made as written except no water chestnuts as our family preference is not to eat them. No matter these beans were gone in a flash! Easy to make and looks great. The slightly caramelized mushrooms, garlic and onions tasted divine. Everyone went for seconds. Made for Bargain Basement Tag Game Sept. 2011. Enjoy! ChefDLH
