Reviews for Lemon-Garlic Green Beans
"PRE BOILED THE BEANS FIRST, THEN STIR FRY THEM.IF YOU ADD THE TARRAGON SAUCE WILL BE FINE OR JUST USE GARLIC AND OR MRS DASH REGULAR OR GARLIC /HERB. BE INVENTIVE"
"I agree, sounds rather blah to me. Have you ever tried fresh green beans in a "marinara" type sauce? It's just a simple tomato marinara sauce of sautee'd onion, garlic, little oregano, salt and pepper. Really good with hard, crusty Italian bread."
"I thought this recipe was one of the worst for fresh green beans. No flavor and they nearly burned up before they were tender crisp. I won't use it again."
