  1. Just want to confirm that 5 cans of green beans isn't a typo – ? – didn't think all of that would fit in a 9×13 … Also, if cooked in a crockpot what temp and how long would it cook? Thank you!

    1. 5 can of green beans – no typo.

      I've never made this in the slow cooker. I wouldn't think it would take long to cook in one. Let me know if you try it!

  3. Bringing this to thanksgiving dinner…. looks like a winner. Can't believe its only a handful of ingredients… don't really care for "traditional" green bean casserole either. Going to use coco-aminos instead of soy sauce – has the same taste almost. Great pictures! Happy Holidays 🙂
