I can't believe how yummy this turned out. And it was very easy to do with just a few ingredients. The bacon turned out sweet with the brown sugar. The beans were perfect after the 15 minutes. Thanks Chefpooky :) Made for PAC Spring 2012
Yummy! I made it even easier by using the real bacon pieces in a jar/package, and added water chestnuts because I had a few left over from a salad. Great Flavor!
A great and simple way to make green beans that I've never tried before. The green beans had a nice sweet flavour that could be paired with a spicy dish for contrast. We're going to make them with spicy chicken next time (hubby's idea). Thanks for the recipe. This was made and reviewed for the All New Zaar Recipe Tag game.
