"Who knew you could make green beans so yummy! I halved the recipe as I was just feeding two, but kept the amount of chicken broth the same. The only thing I'd do differently is reduce the amount of olive oil, as these were a little too greasy for me. Other than that, this is a great recipe. I sprinkled them with some Kirkland No-Salt Organic Seasoning at serving time and they really looked beautiful. My dad, who's used to canned green beans with nothing special, felt like he was eating gourmet! He said that the green beans could actually be his favorite part of the meal, just because he couldn't believe how good I was able to make them! I served this with turkey breast and recipe #72243 and what a delicious meal. Since I had left over broth, I was able to easily cook up a second batch the next day. Thanks, Bev!"
"This recipe is a keeper. I sauteed mushrooms with the garlic."
"Really really good!! I also omitted the sugar and added some soy sauce!!"
"This is a great side dish. I've made it several times and it always tastes great."
"My family absolutley LOVED this dish. I have made it for several pot-lucks and now it's being requested! If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!"
"Great way to make green beans for added flavor on your plate. Everyone here loved them!"
"These green beans were absoultely delicious. They were easy to prepare, had a really nice flavor, and made my not-so-fresh green beans look crisp, with bright green coloring (probably from the sugar) after they were cooked. I used 5 cloves of garlic. DH and I like our beans a bit softer than what the 10 minutes in the skillet allotted (personal taste). I simmered for about 15 minutes and still would have liked them softer. DH suggested we parboil first next time (again, personal taste, I am sure). We will certainly be having this again. Thanks!"
"I'm not a garlic loving person but these were really good. I cut out most of the salt and they were still delicious! Thanks Bev"
"These were wonderfully crisp and very flavorful. I added a little extra garlic and otherwise followed the recipe to perfect results. Thanks for sharing your recipe Bev!"
"GREAT, GREAT! Such a nice way to dress up this vegetable! I fix green beans a lot, so am always looking for new ways to serve them, & this is a definite winner! I'm not a big fan of salting & peppering [would rather leave that to the person eating them], so I cut back on both in the preparation & was totally satisfied! Will be keeping this recipe & making it often! Thanks!"
"Yummy way to serve up green beans! I didn't add any sugar and used coarse salt. They were nice and crisp and very tasty. Thanks Bev!"
"A wonderful way to prepare fresh green beans. Made this as per the directions except reduced it by half to serve 2. For my taste, I considerably reduced the salt. These are quick to fix and something I will try again. Thanks for a wonderful side."
