Reviews for Fancy Green Beans
"These are flavorful and the entire family loved them. Since I have "gouty" menfolk, I substituted ham base for the bacon."
"I found the green beans to be a bit on the bland side. I say I would try it again but would make it spicier."
"I bet thie would also be good with snap peas. Might try that."
"I bet these would also be good on snap peas. Might try that."
"tasty. Servec to friends at a steak BBQ. Perfect side dish...easy to prepare"
"Excellent recipe. Made just as written, and enjoyed by all. Will use this for company."
"I like to add some chopped fresh chilies when I saute the onions and peppers They just to give these some sting. Works equally well with fresh or frozen baby peas. Dice the peppers and onions for consistency in size and shape (Nice thing about frozen is that you don't have to precook. Just thaw in a bowl with hot tap water.) Overall, very good."
"The photograph shows sliced red peppers & onions - the onions are colored by the teriyaki sauce."
"I'm just curious. The photograph shows both red and yellow peppers, I think. But the recipe says just red. Or . . . what IS that yellow stuff???"
