Reviews for Seasoned Green Beans
"A solid 4. I was really hoping for a solid punch of seasoning and it wasn't quite there. I would amp up the seasoning next time and add a little pepper too inoted of following the recipe. But we did clean the bowl and each child had a few so I would consider it a moderate hit. I did love the steaming too."
"Really a fun way to dress up green beans! I want to try it on squash!"
"Very good! Used the 1/4 tsp seasoned salt and 1/2 tsp chilli powder. I think 1/2 tsp seasoned salt would be too much"
"I just made the recipe using all listed seasonings, a 1/4th less butter, and fresh green beans.I honestly do not see the appeal. WAY too greasy (too much butter) for my taste. The butter seemed to cancel out the other seasonings.Not for me."
"Great and simple recipe if you like green beans without a lot of extras."
"These are very good. Not too spicy for my kids."
"I used olive oil instead of butter. Very good!"
"We loved these! We will be making these often."
"They were fine and easy enough."
"My family n I enjoyed this recipe it's quick and easy and quite tasty"
"I've made twice and have received many compliments!"
"Very tasty. I reduced the chili powder in fear the children would detect it and refuse to eat the beans. Will definitely make again."
"Fantastic! Made just as instructed but instead of onion powder, I caramelized diced yellow onions in a bit of olive oil and salt and tossed the seasoned string beans into the onions. then served."
"Love this recipe. I brought this to work for a Thanksgiving potluck and everyone loved it too. The only change I made was I added a dash of Cayenne pepper and instead of adding seasoned salt I did half the garlic powder and half garlic salt. Otherwise this is a perfect side-dish."
"Just the right amount of seasoning. Very flavorful. Glad I found this recipe. I used fresh green beans."
"I'm not a big fan of green beans, but my husband is. So, I tired this recipe. I used canned green beans instead of fresh, after they were done heating up, I drained the juice, and added the rest. They were so good, even I liked them, and we finished off the whole dish! Will try this on my daughter, who also doesn't like green beans. This is truly a keeper!"
"The recipe is great. We loved the seasoning mixture on the beans."
"I made this tonight it was really good. I would used the 1/2 teaspoons started with the 1/4 but it needed more."
"A new stable in out house hold!"
"This was delicious! I have a hard time trying to get my husband to eat veggies so spicing them up a bit is what I had to do. I left off the onion powder because I didn't have it on hand, but it still turned out perfect. I will be making this again and again."
"My whole family really enjoyed this recipe. It is just the right amount of seasoning. I added mushrooms to mine and sauteed it in evoo and butter then added ckn broth to steam it a bit. Yum!!!"
"This is much better than plain green beans."
"They had good flavor, but they weren't real "spicy"--seasoned just right."
"Yum! This is a good one if you like a little spice."
"It was yummy!"
"This was so good that my husband has requested his green beans this way every time!!"
"Very good, made these for Thanksgiving side dish. Next time I'll add some crumbled bacon"
