Exactly like the green beans I get at our chinese buffet! what a happy surprise to find this recipe and be able to have them at home, I steamed the green beans instead of boiling them, and in the future since I am cutting fat I am going to try and just omit the butter, it HAS to still be wonderful! Thanks Inez!
I totally LOVED these green beans, never made them fresh before, and the garlic/butter combo make them to die for! I could live on these alone! Thanks so much, I just realized 3 of the recipes I made tonight were from you! lol
this is really good Inez....I tried it with garlic salt and omitted the plain salt and it was great.....another good one.
