You’ll love the great flavor and easy preparation of Trisha Kruse’s fresh side dish. The Eagle, Idaho cook tosses bright green beans in a sweet sauce with a subtle kick.

"My husband said, "This is the most delicious way you've ever cooked beans". That sums it up! They were great."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 20, 2015

"This was good, not great to us. I used 1/2 the amount of red pepper. It was really easy to make though."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 23, 2014

"This was a quick and easy recipe to make and tasted great! You could also add some almonds or walnuts for some crunch."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 4, 2013

"Normally my husband doesn't care much for green beans but he LOVES them prepared this way. I subbed shallots for the red onion, and left out the red pepper flakes, otherwise I made them exactly according to the recipe. Yum!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 22, 2012

"I made this to go with the Pork Tenderloin Satay recipe also on this website. My husband and I thought they were great! My daughter thought they were good but a little too spicy, so next time I'll cut way back on the red pepper flakes if not eliminate them entirely."
