I'm nuts too...

I thought that these were okay, I drained them before serving, and they went over well with the true test, "picky girl", she liked them, a lot. I think that I would 1/2 the soy & Worcestershire sauces next time. Don't add any salt, as they have plenty as it is. Thanks Denise ;)


We like green beans, fresh, frozen & canned. I have made this several times using all three types. Each time someone asks me for the recipe. This is great for a pot luck dish. A nice twist for green beans.


just plain beans that taste great! couldn't have said it better myself. I substituted chicken bouillon for beef and used frozen green beans and they turned out great.
