Oh yum, oh yum, oh yum! Chia, what's wrong with you, there's not an ounce of pork in this recipe! These were really really good! I mean really! I wanted to keep with the sweet theme, so I left out the thyme, and instead of plain pecans used Chinese pecans, which are sugared. These are green beans the tooth fairy would love!

Excellent recipe. The beans were crisp, yet tender, and a bright vibrant green. The flavor was excellent, the measurements precise, and the directions accurate. Great choice for guests, yet simple enough to prepare any night.
