"This was a huge hit. I boiled 8 oz. frozen French-style green beans, drained them, and added the remaining ingredients. Instead of halving them for the two of us, I used nearly the full amounts of everything. DH was thrilled with the flavor, and I know I'll be making them often."

"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."

"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."
