“This red and green dish is especially nice at Christmas. The ingredients sound a little odd, but the peanuts and soy give it a bit of an Oriental taste. I have always received compliments on this. ”

Hubs and I both enjoyed these a lot! The pimiento is a nice addition, but I couldn't bring myself to add the peanuts, which just didn't sound appealing. Rather than steaming the beans I nuked them while I had the butter/soy mixture on the stove. I didn't bother refrigerating it overnight and I don't see how doing that would have necessarily been an improvement. Very pretty and nicely flavored.



Too much garlic, soy sauce is overpowering, and the peanuts were the worst thing of all. We tried this recipe because it sounded interesting, however out of a whole family of "we'll try anything" eaters-NOBODY liked this, absolutely nobody. Sorry!



I used fewer pimentos and about 1/2 the amount of soy sauce, and raw peanuts, to cut down on the salt content and they were still delicious
