These tangy, savory green beans compliment any meal, and couldn't be simpler to make. Best if made with fresh green beans, but frozen green beans are just as good.

These beans were simple to make and the whole family enjoyed them. I am always looking for a new way to prepare veggies. This was great and I will make them again.
