Fresh Green Beans & Garlic Recipe

I am a firm believer that fresh is best. I developed this recipe to take advantage of our garden veggies. It really shows off the full flavor of the green beans. —Carol Mayer, Sparta, Illinois

MY REVIEW

Family loved this recipe. Will be making this again. Loved the garlic taste to the beans.

MY REVIEW

Excellent and easy. My kind of recipe. I did double the broth and the cooking/simmering time.

MY REVIEW

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.

Winner, winner! I used Smart Balance margarine instead of butter and oil and made 1/2 a recipe. I steamed the beans earlier in the day to make it easier for me, and I sauteed the beans in the "sauce" as the meat I was serving rested. Fantastic! I never thought to add browned garlic to green beans. This is definitely a great way to enjoy them.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 1, 2014

I loved the garlic here; it was mellow and crisp and brought out the flavor of the beans. I reduced the butter to 2 tsp and skipped the oil altogether. I used regular broth and left out the added salt. Even my picky eater didn't have trouble eating them.
