I just finished cooking these and had to sneak one before they were served, and they were good!!! I used granulated garlic instead of cloves because I didn't want to bite down on a garlic slice, and apple cider vinegar instead of red wine. The vinegar gave it a wonderful kick... perfect side dish for meatloaf!

This a wonderful green bean dish, quick to make and delicious! I made half of the recipe and enjoyed the zip that the vinegar added. The red pepper gave just enough of a kick - great dish - thanks for sharing the recipe!
