"One word: Yuck! I had high hopes for this, I really did. Although, I could hear a warning bell ringing when I read to add salt before the beans were cooked to tenderness. As a rule (Google it for yourself) you should NEVER put salt in beans before they're cooked. They will never get tender. Alas, this did not either. As much as I wanted this to work, it didn't. I'm going to find a recipe instead that has me soak them overnight, then add everything and cook. Sorry Betty, but I cannot lie. Now as for Dinowife, Valerie1964 has that right. You have to find a crockpot recipe to use a crockpot, so her review is unfair. I cannot say how disappointed I am in this. There is really nothing that could improve it, I'm afraid. I will say that it smelled wonderful in the oven and I suspect your other reviewers look at it half-way through and thought how good they were going to be, so wrote a review. This is just not so. I will also say that I seldom give recipes bad reviews and I'm a very experienced cook. I followed this to the letter and it just doesn't work. Good luck to anyone else who tries."

"Man this was out of this world! I made it for Thanksgiving and will likely make it again for New Years. My new mother-in-law was thrilled and asked me for the recipe. She thought it was just cranberry juice, but was surprised to hear (and taste) that it was so much more."

"This is the one best tried and true casserole on earth. I've eaten it since I was a child. My mother used to make it, and now I make it for my family. It's the only casserole that is both simple and delicious. I always double the recipe and add 2 tsp. of either Worcestershire or soy sauce, for added flavor. I use more fried onions than it calls for too, because I just love those. There are various "classic green bean casserole" recipes out there, but this particular one is, by far, my favorite."
