Brandy first made this dish for me on Mother's Day. I loved it then and I love it now. String beans were never cooked like this when I was young. I know most people call them green beans but where I'm from we call them string beans or snap beans. My family alway cooked the life out of a vegetable. Then we would chop them up. I never knew what a tender vegetable was only mushy over cooked ones.
