"I reduced all of the quantities by 2/3 to feed my small family: 16-oz. bag of French-cut frozen green beans, 2 tbsp. brown sugar, 2 tbsp. melted butter, 1/2 tsp. garlic salt and 1/4 tsp. soy sauce. This amount fits perfectly into a 1 1/2-quart slow cooker. I've made it a few times now and have decided that everyone likes it better if I go scanty on the brown sugar and add just a dribble of additional soy sauce. I love that you can start it early and forget about it while you're preparing other dishes."

"I used fresh green beans. I steamed them for 6 minutes in the microwave and then put them in the crock pot. so easy to make. I added an onion and some ginger for even more flavor. My family ate the whole thing. Will definitely make these again"

"This is such an easy way to fix a side dish—especially for a big meal like Thanksgiving or Christmas! Very tasty; however, my family felt they were too sweet, so now I cut down on the sugar and add a splash more soy sauce and they are perfect!"

"I used the big can of Cut Green Beans from Sam's and drained them. Placed in Crock Pot, mixed the stick of melted butter, brown sugar, soy sauce and garlic salt together and poured over them. Set it on low for 2 and half hours. So easy. They were delicious! Wouldn't change a thing!"

"Made for Christmas. Very good. Everyone loved them. The only change I made eas to use vegan butter so my vegan daughter could eat them . Made them in a big pot instead of the crockpot. Will definitely make them again."

"I used 4 12 oz bags of green beans. Two French style and two regular cut. These beans were very easy and making it in the slow cooker made it very convenient for Thanksgiving. I used four cloves of fresh garlic that I saut?ed in the butter and added thin sliced almonds. Everyone liked the beans, but felt that I should have doubled the sauce. We really couldn't taste the the sauce, but there were a lot of beans to cover. I will try these again. Thank you for sharing!"

"These were wonderful! Will be making for Thanksgiving this year. Used three 16 oz. packages of frozen green beans. My store did not have french-style so used the thin extra long green beans. Great recipe to free up oven space and cooking time for the big day!"
