Delicious beans. I had to to use canned beans, but will make them again when I have fresh. Thanks for sharing. Made for What's on the Menu tag.

We loved em! The only problem is, even 5 mins steaming is not enough time. It was very crunchy so we had to cook them ALOT longer. Maybe it was something I did wrong, but in any case they were great!

Loved these slightly sweet and sour beans. We cooked them longer, as well, to suit our tastes better.
