I subbed 3 cans of green beans since I didn't have fresh on hand but wanted to try this recipe any way - kept everything else the same (except I didn't boil the beans of course). I don't think that was a good idea! The sauce was a lot thicker than what's shown in Kathy228's picture, the flavor was only 'okay', but I bet it's a lot better with fresh green beans. Thank you.
I liked this a lot. The only substitution I made was I didn't have a lemon, so I used 2 tbsp orange juice. I don't think the recipe suffered for it, as I loved the orange flavor mingling with the PB. This sauce, used on chicken or rice, would really be good. Great recipe Becky.
