YUM!Thanks Sandra B,what a great change from plain green beans. The trick is to keep your beans tender-crisp and bright green as the recipe suggests. We loved them!

So simple yet it gives a wonderful flavor lift to the beans. I cut the butter back to 1 tsp.I like the appearance of the grainy mustard on the beans. This can be a do ahead recipe - steam the beans until just crisp, set aside and just before dinner heat the butter with the mustard, add beans and heat through and serve.
