    Great recipe. Very simple. I just added some sliced shiitake mushrooms about 1/5 of the way through cooking the green beans and it was perfect.

    Great, the flakes of red pepper made it more flavorful

    They were good, but since the ratio of chilli flakes to beans was off the chilli over-powered the dish.

    I used frozen green beans and cooked them just a little before sautéing in the olive oil and garlic (my husband is from the south and won’t eat green beans al dente) I did not have pepper flakes but used Old Bay seasoning figuring it had a little zing that was close to pepper flakes DELICIOUS! My husband and son actually ate their green beans without argument if I were to make it for just me I would follow the recipe more exactly as I love al dente green beans very good flavor and easy to fix thanks for new favorite recipe

    These were simple to make and were delicious. I think it just needs more flavor and the green beans were a little too crunchy, but it was great overall and I will make them again.

    I didn’t have chili flakes so I used southwest chipotle seasoning and it’s amazong

    Pretty good! Don't over cook the garlic. I looked on medium heat then turned it down to simmer until desired texture

    These could have used more salt. I added more garlic and added a little water at he bottom of the skillet to create more of a steam. I would make these again but I'd add my own twist to it.

    The chili flakes were a little overpowering. These were fairly spicy green beans when expecting it to be more of a garlic sauté flavor. I really enjoyed the flavor though.

    I started to burn the garlic so I added water to the beans and let that simmer out. Might add some alternative seasonings next time.

    Nice way to eat beans. I used to have them with garlic only, but the chili definitely added something here.

    So good as a side or the main meal, and super easy to make! My boyfriend loves this because he loves garlic, adding steak spice also makes them good too but a bit salty compared to the normal one.

    This was awesome! My dad, who never eats greens, loved them! The whole family love them. I will be fixing them again.

    Used cayenne rather than chilli flakes; stainless steel pan cause garlic to burn, will use non stick in the future.
