Recipe by COOKGIRl

From mint this time around! Original recipe called for braising the green beans for a whopping forty five minutes. Use the best and freshest ingredients available. Several changes in this recipe were made.

Ooh we enjoyed this! I used the whole pepper. I subbed chicken broth for the wine. It came out perfect! Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers. :)
