    Thank you, loved this recipe! What a great and easy way to cook green beans and not the same old boring way. I have a cast iron skillet, so gave the recipe a try. Used a no salt Cajun seasoning. Recipe was quick and never thought of coating with cornmeal! My family loved this and I now make these crispy green beans often. Five stars!
