"This red and green dish is especially nice at Christmas. The ingredients sound a little odd, but the peanuts and soy give it a bit of an Oriental taste. I have always received compliments on this. "

garlic, thinly sliced
fresh green beans
1 (4 ounce) jar
diced pimento peppers, drained
chopped salted peanuts
Hubs and I both enjoyed these a lot! The pimiento is a nice addition, but I couldn't bring myself to add the peanuts, which just didn't sound appealing. Rather than steaming the beans I nuked them while I had the butter/soy mixture on the stove. I didn't bother refrigerating it overnight and I don't see how doing that would have necessarily been an improvement. Very pretty and nicely flavored.
Too much garlic, soy sauce is overpowering, and the peanuts were the worst thing of all. We tried this recipe because it sounded interesting, however out of a whole family of "we'll try anything" eaters-NOBODY liked this, absolutely nobody. Sorry!
I used fewer pimentos and about 1/2 the amount of soy sauce, and raw peanuts, to cut down on the salt content and they were still delicious
The family LOVED this recipe. I used pine nuts instead of peanuts (because my husband ate the peanuts the night before!). It was pretty, tasty, and perfect on the seasoning. Great small of garlic, too. Excellent recipe, thanks!!
The flavor of these over all was really very good. I cut the butter, lemon & soy in half and still used more than 2 lbs of green beans. Even cutting the sauce in half it was still too much sauce for us. I didn't have pimentos so I used red bell pepper, diced small. Hubby LOVED the addition of peanuts. I have some left over sauce and will try it on broccoli tomorrow. Thanks for an inspiring recipe.
Simple and pretty colors for the holiday table. This was a hit for the whole family. Just wish there was a way to make the sauce stick to the beans.
This recipe is excellent. I used just 1/2 a cup of chopped peanuts and it was more than enough. Everyone raved over this dish and asked for the recipe.
Got raves at the Thanksgiving dinner with this recipe and requests to make it again at Christmas.
