  1. These were a hit at an office get-together. Several people asked for the recipe and already requested it for next year's event! Easy and delicious!

  2. Made the Smothered Green beans this evening for my Bunco group and it was awesome. Several ladies asked for the recipe. I will be making this again. I followed the recipe except I did not have low sodium soy sauce so I just used regular soy sauce. So good!

  3. Is the brown sugar packed or unpacked? Also, how will it affect cooking time of I swap canned grean beans for fresh?

    1. You can use regular. I just usually have low-sodium on hand, so that is what I used. I also get tons of comments about sodium content of recipes, so I look to reduce it where I can.

  4. I included this recipe in my weekly cooking session. I used 3 cans of green beans but the full amount for the sauce and added some onions with the bacon. Oh my word! I'm not going to have any problem making sure none of this goes to waste! Can't wait for Monday's lunch!!

  5. Hi Stephanie! I just made these for Christmas dinner for the entire family and it was a HUGE hit! This will definitely be a new addition for holiday family dinners. I will have to double next time since it was gone. I made mine in the crock pot and would do it again. Thank you again for sharing this amazing recipe!
