Really good side dish. I used baby portabellas and canned green beans and it worked out just great! Thanks for posting. Made for Rookie Recipe tag game.

I make my green beans using nearly the same recipe all the time. (I didn't know there was a recipe listed here for them.) I do use less butter & a little more chicken broth though. DH & I really love them. It is a nice change from plain old green beans.

We really enjoyed this recipe. I get so tired of the same old steamed beans with salt and pepper! I would like to try this with criminis, the shiitake were a bit too flavorful for DH. They were even better the next day! tanks.
