"This was an interesting recipe. At first I absolutely hated it, I did not like the taste of the sauce over the green beans at all. I was actually planning to walk to the sink and dump it down the garbage disposal. Then I decided to dip my slightly dry steak in the sauce and I loved it!! I am planning to heat up the leftovers tomorrow and eat it that way. Nice surprise, I hate wasting food."

"Delicious! A great way to jazz up green beans for a fancy meal. I used frozen green beans and they worked just fine.
