I have made these a couple of times. Frozen whole green beans were just as good as fresh. This recipe is easy and very tasty!

This was a very nice change from an ordinary green bean recipe. We will make this again.
I sauteed the onions in butter and then added the brown sugar based on other reviews.

WOW!!! These were AMAZING! Best beans ever. This will be how I make them from now on. But I did notice that as they started to cool the sugar started to turn to glue. Definitely best when hot. Thank you MrsEl.

I think these are the best green beans I have ever made. I did not have fresh green beans, so I bought a package of green and yellow green beans and used those. The caramelized onions and the balsamic vinegar, along with the brown sugar and butter really were a great combination. They only took me about 20 minutes to cook and I served them with Recipe 157418 (Honey Pecan Pork Chops), a green salad and garlic bread. What a wonderful side dish and I will be making this dish again and again.

YUM! How can you go wrong with caramalized onions. I loved this recipe. It was like green bean candy. I definitely recommend fresh green beans. Next time I make this I'm gonna half the butter and brown sugar. I don't think it would compromise the taste. Thanks!

When you can get big grins from dh & dd for a vegetable recipe, you know you've got a 5* dish! This was very easy to make & had a great combination of flavors. I wish fresh green beans weren't so darned expensive here, I would make this much more often! Thanks, MrsEl!

Yummy! Love the sweet/tangy flavor that it has. I also used Splenda as suggested by Cindytc. And since it is January in Ohio we have nothing that could be considered "fresh" except snow so I used canned beans and they worked just fine too. Thanks for the post MrsEl. These will definitely be made often.

I sauted the onions in the butter and then added the brown sugar. I used fresh green beans with this recipe and boy am I glad I did. Fabulous flavor!! Made this for Thanksgiving dinner and my family loved it. Definitely a keeper!!

Made these last night...fantastic, very simple and a wonderful sweet taste, I did not have enough green beans so i added some asparagus, and substituted Splendra for the sugar...turned out perfect..

I love this recipe for green beans, and we have a bumper crop this year! I'm sure I'll be making them once or twice this season :) It is an easy and quick way to make green beans, especially since you can pre-cook the beans. YUMMY
