Green Beans w/ Onion in Beef Bouillon

Submitted by: WANT2BEFITBY40

Introduction

These green beans are SO easy, but the fact that they simmer in beef bouillon gives them the best flavor. We never have any left over. Both my boys love them....my 12 year old will eat 2nds and 3rds.

--------------------------------
*I usually open the cans of green beans, and rinse them with a little water to remove any salt that was put in the can. The bouillon adds beef flavor along with the salt that's in it, so you won't need to add salt in with the spices.

*Also, these are good with mushrooms sauted in with the onion, if you like mushrooms.
