I love this bean recipe and everyone compliments me on it at holidays. I was searching for a recipe that didn't involve cheese, cream soups, etc.... and this is definitely it!

This is a fabulous recipe! I must say however it took much more than 15 minutes to prepare it, using fresh green beans. It would be a delicious side with any Asian cuisine, as is it has that yummy soy sauce and rich beef bouillon flavor. I never thought I would ever find any green bean recipe that topped beans combined with sauteed onions and bacon. This recipe is equally as good and a great hit with a different twIst. Yum!!
