So I need to start by saying that I am not a fan of green beans. At all. It was never really part of the Korean diet growing up so I don’t think I even tried a single green bean until my early twenties.

And after trying that single green bean, I swore green beans off forever. That is, until I had this green bean casserole, smothered in the creamiest mushroom sauce and topped with extra crunchy friend onions.

Now I may have just picked off all of the fried onions and mushrooms I could find but still, I think I managed to sneak in a couple of green beans here in there!
