If I had prepared this recipe strictly as written I'm fairly confident I would have had a problem with it. A whole 8 oz. package of mushrooms to a mere cup of green beans would be just a tad heavy on the mushrooms - unless this was a mushroom side dish and not a green bean side dish! That said, I chose to substitute fresh green beans, cooking them in simmering water for five minutes, then transferring them to an ice bath. I used a combination of butter and bacon grease to sauté my desired amount of mushrooms, onions and, at the last, the garlic, and cooked bacon - then tossed in the cooked green beans and heated them through. All of the additions - the garlic, onion, bacon, mushrooms and lemon-pepper seasoning all contributed great flavor to this unordinary green bean side dish.

Decided to try this with a pork roast tonight, and it turned out so good that my fiancee ate two servings before I had finished serving myself. Will definitely be a repeat side dish. Although I should clarify that I did use canned french style beans since I did not have any frozen ones. Everything else I followed the recipe for.

I made a few slight changes. I used shallots instead of onions. I used fresh haricots verts and skipped the lemon pepper seasoning. It was a big hit as a side dish at Thanksgiving.

I have used this recipe for years, and it is great!! Glad to see it on here. It is a easy, quick, but extremely tasty recipe. I use fresh green beans, shitake mushrooms, and shallots. Makes it a little more exotic in taste.

This is a great and easy way to fix up a simple side dish. I used French-cut canned green beans because I don't care for the texture of frozen ones. The seasoning is spot-on -- great flavor without being too much. Thanks.
