These beans are just marvelous! We really enjoyed them and they came out just right, not overcooked and not underdone. We really enjoyed the tanginess from the vinegar and just like Vickie (NorthwestGal) we served this with Pork Chops With Tangy Red Currant Sauce.

This was a delicious (and easy) way to prepare green beans. My husband loves hazelnuts, so it's a recipe I'm sure I'll turn to often. It was really good, and it went well with the pork chops with a tangy red currant sauce that we had for dinner. Thanks, lazyme. Made for 2014 Culinary Quest (PNW).
