Can you Use Frozen or Canned Green Beans

Yes!  Canned or frozen green beans can be used as a substitution for this recipe, but of course, they wont have that tender crisp taste that the fresh green beans have.

If you decide to use frozen green beans, I would thaw them before using them in this recipe.  Likewise,  if using canned green beans, make sure they’re completely drained before sauteing them.
