Reviews for Fresh Green Beans & Garlic

Flavor was great, especially with so few ingredients. I made a half a recipe and used a skillet instead of a dutch oven. Came out just fine. Family requested I make this again soon.
Love the flavor! Fresh green beans are delicious, and this recipe made them even better.
Family loved this recipe. Will be making this again. Loved the garlic taste to the beans.
Excellent and easy. My kind of recipe. I did double the broth and the cooking/simmering time.
The garlic adds a nice depth of flavor and I like the idea of cooking the beans in broth rather than water. I reduced the recipe by half for just the two of us, added some pine nuts which we love with green beans. As a volunteer field editor my only comment is that they don't need to cook until all the broth evaporates.. just until tender crisp.
