    Debber's Note:

    Green beans never had it so good! If this doesn't convert your hard-core bean-hater into a bean-lover, I don't know what will! We rarely have leftovers of this recipe, and when we do, they're GREAT the second time around. NOTE: You can substitute canned beans for fresh, just skip the directions for cooking the beans.

      I halved the recipe, but put four slices of bacon in at the end anyway because, having been directed to cook so much bacon (still had 3 extra strips), I wasn't really thinking about it. This was very easy and tasted delicious. Will definitely be making it again. Thanks for sharing.

      Excellent green beans! I've been sneaking little bites as I cook. I can't wait for DH to try, he loves green beans, (one of the few veggies this picky man likes). I love the sweet/sour flavor of them. 5 BIG FAT STARS all the way.

      Just loved these green beans!!! I used canned green beans, so also very easy and quick to make. I make a very similar recipe, except it has no soy sauce, brown sugar or the cornstarch, so this was a nice change from the one I have made for years!! Will definitely make these again!! Thanks Debber for a new veggie recipe!!
