    My only problem with this recipe is the 12 minute boiling time suggested. If placed in rapidly boiling water, 7 minutes works every time for a cooked but firm bean. - 10/17/09

    I simply love this recipe! I love fresh green beans but could never think of anything to do with the other than boiling them,,,bland...yuck. But saute'ing these beans with the olive oil and salt/pepper brings out such great flavor in them. I just leave out the onions since I am allergic to them. - 3/16/07

  • How can you go wrong with grilled onions? You can't. I like green beans anyway, so adding grilled onions is like gilding the lily. However, I didn't think it was a great mix. It was ok, but I don't think they complement each other as much as I imagined. - 2/7/11

  • I made this tonight. I used onions and garlic and a little soy sauce. I didn't care for the texture of the beans ( I blanched them for 12 minutes), and I wish I had left them longer in length instead of cutting them up like the recipe calls for. I expected it to be better, but it was just okay. - 9/13/10

  • Our favprite is fresh green beans with just garlic. I can buy them just 5 mins. away at a farm stand because they take up too much of my limited garden space to grow.

  • This is a great recipe that can be modified in so many ways.
