"It was pretty good. I accidentally forgot to add the sour cream though. :/ It was still good. I cooked it a little longer than it said because I don't like green beans that crunchy and the hubby said it needed a little bit more salt but other than that, it was really good."

"Loved this recipe. I made a few changes though. I hate green beans that taste frozen, so I cooked mine first for about 45 mins. Yes, I like them cooked to death! I carmelized the onions and added the cooked green beans. I used sea salt and increased it to about 1/2 teaspoon."
