I also added a dash of Teriyaki sauce, as well as mushrooms, to the skillet mixture. It was nice to have a different way to serve fresh green beans, but I will keep looking for the perfect way that will satisfy my whole family.

Great tasting and easy to make. To spice it up, I added a dash of Teriyaki Sauce to the mixture in the skillet.
