I made this instead of the traditional green bean casserrole on Thanksgiving. They were pretty good, but not terrific.
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving for my family of 15, it was very easy to make and smelled delicious, however, the final product got poor reviews, very bland compared to everything else on the table. Sorry, but it was a unanimous vote not to make this again.
This was a very good recipe. I tried making it a few times a couple different ways and the best way is as follows. First cook the oil, sugar, and onion on LOW heat. Get it started on med-high, but once the onions start sizzling turn it down to low and stir every once in a while. Second I added a splash of balsamic vinegar (maybe a teaspoon at most). Third I cooked the beans in the microwave first, then threw them in the onion mix and cooked for an additional 5 minutes or so. Hope this helps!
It was really really hard for me to not throw some garlic in as I was cooking, but I stayed true to the recipe and it is an excellent side dish. A nice change of pace from my usual garlic & EVOO roasted green beans. Def worth trying! TY!
i really like the concept of this dish. it may have been my fault, but the sugar and olive oil turned brown pretty quickly and made it taste a little "burnt". i cooked on med-high heat as instructed, but i think next time i'll cook on lower temp. i don't think sugar can handle being sauteed for 10 mins.
I absolutely love this recipe and have made it many times, especially for parties. I use 2 or 3 sliced fresh onions in place of the frozen pearl onions and whole frozen green beans in place of the cut ones, and it looks beautiful. I carmelize the onions with the oil and sugar for about 10 - 15 minutes on low heat (check every couple minutes and give it a stir), then add the green beans until it stops "smoking" (from the ice) and is heated through. After I take it off, I add the fresh dill (I made it once with dried dill weed and it was awful), salt and pepper. It has a beautiful presentation, tastes great, and is easy to put together. Thanks!
nice, different way to make green beans...but they are still green beans
This is the tastiest, easiest side I've made in a long time! I was so pleased that I recapped the entire experience on my blog. You will LOVE this recipe!
