    These are our new go-to green beans. We only use 1/4 of the red pepper flakes.

    This is my go-to for “fancy” green beans, as my kids call them! They are absolutely amazing!! I followed the directions completely and they turn out fantastic!! I use an electric skillet...

    It was good. Easy to make. I used a cast iron skillet. I also added more pepper flakes. I will make it again.

    This was pretty easy to make however the beans needed to be cooked longer. Some were still too crunchy.

    Very good, easy recipe. Lacks slightly in flavor but will still make it again. Maybe needs butter?

    Loved them! Didn’t end up adding the red pepper flakes because I didn’t want spicy for the dish I was pairing it with. So quick and easy, will be making again!
