  1. I'll call these my Teriyaki Green Beans. It was perfect for me , as I like them to be crispy.Nect time I'll make a cornstarch sauce to it. Thanks.
  2. Selicious green beans! I made this just as written. After reading some reviews, I put a lid on the skillet while cooking and the beans had enough moisture and cooked to the perfect tendernes. Some of the beans browned a little, which I like. Thanx for sharing!
  3. Made for 123 tag. These don't turn out as the prettiest green beans I've ever made but oh boy I loved the flavour! YUMMY!
  4. Our beans scorched a bit with the high heat, and could have used extra liquid to help them get done faster, but the combination of soy-garlic-ginger-honey flavors was very nice. ~Sue
  5. Very good flavor, quick and easy too! I like my beans crisp-tender, but these were still just a little to crisp for me. It could be because I cut the recipe way down, and didn't really have a lot of sauce to boil the beans in as the instructions say. Maybe that helps to cook them a little more? At any rate, it's very good and I will make it again, maybe steaming the beans first a little, then continuing on with the recipe. Thanks for sharing!


I am going to use this spot to put some of my favorite cooking tips and tricks that don't really warrant going in as a recipe and so I don't lose them!!
