Found some beautiful green beans at the farmer's market that I couldn't pass up, and this was a very tasty way to show off their goodness. I cooked the green beans in the microwave until crisp-tender, then followed the rest of the recipe. Very enjoyable.

Used fresh green beans, steamed in my vegetable steamer for about 15 minutes and they were perfectly tender, but not mushy. Delicious piquant flavor and something very different for us. Loved it. Thanks Parsley :-)

Yum! A great change from my usual garlic/parmesan/lemon juice green beans. I used frozen beans and served them with ham (#103360) and applesauce.

Made these for Easter dinner and they were a big hit! One problem I had was that the melted butter and dijon didn't mix completely and I wasn't sure if that is how it is supposed to be, but it didn't affect the flavor. Thanks for a keeper recipe!

These were really, really good!I cheated and used frozen green beans, but they still came out great. I did add the brown sugar and will do that again next time. Thanks for sharing!

I absolutely loved these beans!! They were easy, and very, very flavorful. I actually boiled the beans for about 15 minutes instead of steaming them. Then, I made the sauce (I included the brown sugar) and stirred the beans into the skillet. I used Grey Poupon dijon mustard. I am quite sure that I had more like 1.5 lbs of beans, but I still had plenty of sauce to coat them. I served the beans as a side to Mustard-Rubbed Pork Loin With Blackberry Mustard Sauce 373834. I will definitely be making this one again, Parsley! Thanks! Made for ZWT5.

Simple but good. No other way to characterize this. Good in one other way, because I got my photo software to work again! YAY! Loved the mustard/brown sugar combination, too good. BF asked me to keep this recipe. I could see adding shallots, but this really is good as is. Mustard made it work. We eat a lot of green beans, and this will be in our repertoire.

Boy did I make a boo boo...I always buy Steamfresh green beans for the microwave. I find they are really delicious. So I pulled my package out of the freezer and put in the micro for the 5 minutes and got the other ingredients ready in the skillet, I drained my beans and was adding them to the skillet and then realized they were not green beans they were actually sugar snap peas. The right color but the wrong vegetable. I must of grabbed the wrong package at the grocery store....silly me...but I continued to finish the recipe using what I had. It actually was not bad. The sauce was really delicious and so fast to put together. I will have to make again but using the right veggie. Made for ZWT5 '09 Thanks for posting this recipe *Parsley*
