"Good, but I didn't taste much dill. Will double it next time. Thanks Carla!"
"wonderful and easy! i added fresh carrots as well....also added some minced garlic and minced onion for extra flavor...YUMMY!!"
"Wonderful side dish! I used chicken broth, as that was what I had on hand. I did have to drain the broth at the end, so felt I was loosing all that wonderful dill. I only used 1 T butter and that was plenty for us, lots of freshly ground pepper and salt. Next time, I will add the dill at the end and see if that made a difference. Excellent recipe...kudos on the find!!"
"Wow...this is a GRRRREATTTT recipe. We used our first batch of green beans from the garden along with our fresh dill. Simple and just super tasty. Even my picky 8 year old snarfed em down!"
"My mother learned from her mother the Danish way of cooking. She made wonderful creamed vegetables. One of her favorite dishes was "dilled beans," as she called it. I have often just opened a can, added a little butter and the dill. Beans with dill or carrots with parsley are two of my favorite vegetables. This memorial day will see the creamed beans and dill. (Oh yes, she always added a pinch of chicken bullion to her cream sauces."
"Great! Simple, very tasty, and not too overpowering. Will make this again for sure...and try other veggies with it as well. Thanks!"
"Mmmmmmm delicious, nothing more to say!"
"My family loved these beans. I made with some leftover beef broth that I had from my other dishes at tonight's dinner."
"A different, light, fresh way to serve green beans. This was really good."
"I chose this recipe b/c of its simplicity and that fact I love green beans. I followed it to the letter and I have to say, I thought it was just marginal. From the reviews, I was expecting some incredibly flavorful dish -- it just wasn't there for me, that's all."
"I had to use canned green beans (my fresh ones spoiled much sooner than anticipated!), and this recipe actually did a good job of flavoring up those bland canned beans. I'll be trying this one again with fresh beans. :)"
"I had an opened can of veggie broth and some fresh geen beans to use up. So I made these even though I only had dried dill on hand. They still turned out good! Can't wait to try them with fresh dill. Thanks for a quick and simple side."
"These were great and really easy! I had to use dry dill because we didn't have any fresh on hand. It still came out fantastic!"
"tasty! thanks for sharing!"
"My family loves this recipe. I have made this recipe once a week for over a month now. So easy and so delicious."
"These were a big hit. I did the overal preparation differently because it was for our seder and we hate over cooked beans. I put the entire lot, including a 1/4 cup of finely minced onion in a 9x13 pan covered with foil. I also used coconut oil then stuck it in a warm oven for two hours, could have easily been a crock pot too. Perfection they were one of the first things to go!"
"This was a hit. But I have to admit, the green beans I had were looking a little sorry so at the last minute I had to use frozen green peas instead. They were so good with this sauce! Thanks so much, this simple and fresh tasting sauce can be applied to everyday veggies to be sure."
"Lovely side for our Easter dinner! love green beans with the dill. I had to use dried dill, wrong time of the year for fresh dill around here. Never the less they were excellant and I will look forward to using fresh dill next time. Thanks for posting I will be making them again."
"This was fabulous! I had some fresh dill that I needed to use, as well as some beautiful french green beans, so that's why I chose it. In the future, I'll choose it again and again because everyone in my family loved it! I caught picky DS, 4yo, on a step stool picking more out of the pan... unheard of. :) I did use chicken stock and only 1 tbsp of butter, and it was plenty. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"I'm happy to have found a new way to make fresh green beans. I have a recipe similar to this but enjoyed the twist with the fresh dill. It's cold and wintery here right now but can see how this would be really good in the summer next to a grilled meal."
