One of my favorite ways to have green beans. I could eat the whole pan and forget the rest of dinner! I really could!

While this recipe contains many ingredients I usually enjoy, I am sorry to report that this just didn't work out as well as expected. I found the taste to be very vinegary - it completely overwhelmed the beans for me. I love the taste of vinegar, but the vinegary sauce didn't work for me. I am very sorry - I had truly expected to enjoy this more.
