If you’re anything like me, you always seem to always pin the protein down, but go completely blank when trying to decide on what side should go with it.

Especially on busy and tired weeknights, this often makes me want to scrap the whole dinner menu and figure out something else entirely.

    I made exactly as recipe and beans were not soft enough to chew even at 25 minutes. Very tough 🙁
    I am not a fan

    This was great as I had all the ingredients except fresh green beans, so I used frozen whole, added a bit of red pepper flakes and in no time at all shared with my coworkers at our monthly birthday potluck.
    Thanks so much!

    I’ve been searching for a green bean recipe that will actually give the green beans some flavor and…viola!!!! This is it! This was a hit with my two picky teens as this recipe received their stamp of approval. Love the recipe! Veggies are making a comeback in our kitchen! Thank you!
