“You can use fresh or canned green beans, drained. Dressed up with the title ingredients or add slivers of water chestnuts right before serving.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In medium saucepan, add all ingredients except the salt and pepper.
  2. Cook on medium low heat uncovered.
  3. Stir with a spoon from time to time.
  4. Gas stoves seem to be hotter than electric ones so watch that the liquid does not evaporate. When the beans are soft, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Toss a few times to mix. You may use salt substitute or Mrs. Dash Herb and Spice Mixture.
  6. I serve with biscuits and mushroom gravy.
  7. Note: If you use canned green beans, do not drain, add 3/4 cup water. Do not use the 1 1/2 cups of water. Add all of ingredients and cook until onion is soft.
  8. Do not add salt, just pepper as the juice tends to be salty.
