These green beans, with the creamy, sweet and sour onion sauce are wonderful! We had a Hungarian friend over and made chicken and dumplings for him. I wanted to make a side to go with it, and these beans were outstanding! I didnt get a picture, because they were gone before I could get a photo. It is a sweet and sour roux that blends perfectly with the green beans. Very easy to do side dish! Everyone loved them. I found this recipe by June Meyer. She has so many wonderful Hungarian recipes! I agree when she says it is always received by non- Hungarian's as a new taste sensation. This is one that I will make often!
