Absolutely delicious! I used frozen beans, but will make it next time with fresh. Thanks for sharing!

Very simple and tasty dish. I used garden fresh beans and a white sweet onion as that is what I had on hand. The beans were cooked until crisp tender and I did end of draining off the water prior to allowing then to saute for a few minutes. I am always looking for new ways to prepare green beans and I am sure I will be using this recipe again. Thank you. Made for ZWT 8.

A simple and delicious veggie dish! The balsamic vinegar made a great finishing touch. The green beans were a touch more done than our liking, so next time I will pull them off sooner. That's just a personal preference, though. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8

The flavors of this dish were fantastic! Cooking the beans with onion and water almost made it reminiscent of french onion soup! I did feel that the green beans were very over cooked though. I think that could easily be solved by cutting the water in half. Thanks for the great method and mixture of ingredients!

Quick, easy, and convent for busy work nights. Used frozen cut beans as that was what I had in the freezer which did cut the cooking time by about 5 minutes.

We liked these, they were very easy and took no time at all to prepare, a good side for a weeknight supper. Although I followed directions, I cooked them in my convection microwave, allowing about the same amount of time, but keeping the stove top free. Thanks Boomette, for another great way to eat a favourite vegetable! :D

My family thought these beans were good but that they would have been much better if the onions had been caramelized in a skillet first instead of adding to the water. But everyone did like them. Thanks for posting. ~Sue

Really delicious! I like the sweetness imparted by the balsamic vinegar. We had this dish with our Easter lamb and it was a perfect compliment. I will certainly make this dish again.
