"This dish was created out of boredom with plain, average green beans! It's sweet, tangy and savory...and my kids absolutely love it! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! I use leftover sliced deli ham since it is already sliced thin and makes perfect tiny pieces, but leftover dinner ham would be delicious also!" — BellevueMama

extra virgin olive oil
finely chopped onion
chopped cooked ham
2 1/2 tablespoons
red wine vinegar
1 (16 ounce) package
frozen cut green beans, thawed and drained
kosher salt to taste
This was very good and very easy. It adds a nice tang to plain green beans, but might clash with a flavorful main dish. Stir the beans before serving as the sauce does not cling to the beans. And use fresh beans whenever possible! Be forewarned, they smell like dirty socks when you're cooking them.
I didn't have the problem with the sauce not sticking to the beans. It is a bit overpowering though. Served with soy/garlic marinated chops. Thought it would complement them, but the flavor of the beans just took over. They are flavorful though, and will try to find something to better serve them with.
Instead of honey mustard, we used a grainy Dijon mustart...It seems to add to the texture
Thank you so much for this recipe! I needed something creative to make and based on your recipe I made a great main dish with what I had. I used a canned ham, bag of frozen green beans, the red wine vinegar, regular yellow mustard and lots of pepper. Did not add any salt since the canned ham is super salty. Thanks for the great recipe!!
we loved them!! I normally can't get them to eat all their veggies, they ate seconds! and hubby even ate them.
They sure are yummy!
Good way to add some taste to regular green beans. Boys liked it. I used fresh green beans and boiled them for about 10 min before (so they weren't so hard).
Yum good. I could have almost made a meal out of these. I used canadian bacon and probably a little more honey mustard cuz I like it.)
