Really good! What a great new taste for string beans!! I admit, I was wary of the mustard but the flavor worked so well with string beans. Nice and (a bit) tangy, just like you described it. Thanks for something new, and delicious, to jazz up the old string beans!

This was a very good and different way to prepare green beans. Tangy (just as you said) and tasty! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Not bad overall. I'm not a huge mustard fan but thought I would try it. I used 1 teaspoon of spicy mustard (didn't have the coarse kind). Overall, a nice alternative to steamed vegetables.
