I thought these were really good, but my husband and daughter thought they were awful. Who cares what they think? More for me! I used balsamic, and thought they had a nice sweet and sour tatste. Thank-you!

Loved these green beans... I was getting tired of the usual way I prepare them (bacon & onions) and these were great. The only thing I did differently was to add another can of green beans. It was the perfect ratio with the other ingredients for us. Not too sweet or tangy. I used apple cider vinegar and unsalted butter. I also topped them with just a sprinkling of grated pecorino romano, since that is what I had in the fridge... Thanks for posting!!!
