Reviews for Apricot-Glazed Green Beans
"Delicious. Very surprising way to cook green beans, and it is nice way to enjoy vegetables. Definately not boring! A suggestion is to have this as a side dish with a pork main entree. However, it would be great with chicken, too."
"So easy and delicious!"
"Yummy! My kids ate green beans!!"
"I loved it. I used frozen green beans though its what I had,it was easy and delicious! My brother and 9yr old nephew stopped over and had them try it and they also loved it. Will make it again."
