      I steamed the beans in microwave. I liked that it was easy and fast to do. I loved the smell of marjoram but while eating the green beans, I couldn't taste it. I think the dry crushed red pepper were overpowering. I may omit it next time or reduce it. It was very "piquante". Thanks Juenessa for another great recipe with green beans :) Made for 123 hit wonders.

      Really flavorful beans that went perfectly with a stir fry. They smell wonderful as they cook. I didn't have fresh margarom so I used 1/4 tsp. of dried. I also cut the recipe in half and it easily served 4 - meaning fewer calories.:) Thank you for this easy side dish Juenessa!
