Nice flavor! These beans are tangy but the tang does not over power either the beans or the meal. Made using frozen green beans, rice vinegar and cut the oil in half. Also recipe did not state what type of mustard so regular yellow mustard. As these were a hit at the dinner table will be making again. Thanks for the post.

Squeaky good! I did use roasted peppers that I added at the end of the beans cooking. Skipped the water. Thanks

The whole family actually ate this bean recipe! I used frozen Italian green beans and a mixture of red, orange and yellow bell peppers! Will make again! Made for Honor Thy Mother Diabetic tag!
