I cut the recipe in half as I am not a "sauce" fan. Yes, it is on the tart side, but we did enjoy it. We love green beans, so I will be doing this one again!
This was just a little tart for our taste. The vinegar overpowered the other flavors. I did cook mine for about 6 minutes for a crisp tender texture. May cut way back on the vinegar next time. Thanks
delicious, simple and healthy. didnt have shallots so used vidalia onion. very nice as a side dish or add some shrimp and it could be a meal. thanks for sharing.
