One of the better green bean recipes I've ever made. Used real dairy butter rather than "buttery taste margarine," shallots rather than onion, regular rather than fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth and no lemon juice. And salt and pepper of course.


Love this recipe. Used real butter and regular chicken broth.


Amazing!!! I made this with a steak and baked potatoes dinner and it was soooo yummy.. My new fav green beans recipe ! I followed all of the directions, however, I used fresh green beans from the farmers market, regular butter, chicken broth and let the green beans simmer in the broth, onions and garlic for a bit longer than the 6 mins it says. I used half of a large yellow onion and about two cloves of garlic. I used a little more than a pound of fresh green beans so it def was not too much onion and garlic. It came out perfect. It was amazing, my whole family loved it.. I will def make again !
