Recipe by Bill Hilbrich
An adaptation of my memory of green beans served in a steak house in Omaha Nebraska. The owner's daughter would only tell us that the secret to this sweet sour dish was something that most people throw away. Pictured here with No-Nonsense Chuck Eye steak #238451

These were good, they definitely had a different flavor than my normal grean beens which I season with onions, bacon and a little garlic. My husband and I both like them, but my husband couldn't guess the secret ingredient, I finally had to tell him. I love the flavor of bacon in my green beans and I'm wondering what these green beans would taste like with bacon? I might just have to experiment! Thanks for sharing!
