Simply the Best Green Beans

"We eat these green beans at least once a week and I haven't found anything to top them. The secret ingredient is the spice blend. I originally found this blend at Gordon Food Services in Michigan. (I have to have my mom ship it to me once a year; the 26 oz container of the spice lasts me about that long). I recently tripled the recipe and took them to work for a lunch for 20 people. Personally, I still like them better from the stove top but I would take them again in a crock pot knowing that I need to stir often so the beans on the outer edge do not get over done. (People did actually go back for seconds)"

    Very easy and so tasty! I liked how easy they were, I made 1/4 of the recipe and halved the seasoning. Will keep this in our rotation, thank you!

    I've made green beans every conceivable way... Or so I thought. These were AMAZING. Easiest and most delicious way I've tried, by far. I used reduced sodium Montreal Steak Seasoning. Will be telling everyone about this & making it my go-to from here on out. Thank you!

    What a wonderful and easy recipe. I used the Montreal seasoning and mixed everything together to marinate before cooking. This is a great change. thanks.


I love my husband, my cat, theology, food, wine, high-tech gadgets, and cooking. I also read cookbooks and cooking magazines like some people read novels. I am sure other foodies will relate;-)
