I have to confess. I didn't have green peppercorns. I just used a lot of freshly ground black pepper. THE BEANS WERE AMAZING !! I used the leftovers in a stir-fry the next day. I can't wait to buy green peppercorns to see what the difference is!

Do not try this recipe with ground black pepper and dried red chile flakes.I used 1 tbs black pepper and found that the pepper was way too overpowering. I didn't like the recipe so I would suggest following the recipe instead of substituting.

I was looking for these asian beans, and these were great. I followed the recipe the first time and felt they weren't done enough. Since then I have made them many times but fry for 5 minutes and steam for 5 minutes (or so). The beans stay crunchy but are much better IMO.

Yowza!!! The submitter of this recipe (Annabel) is going to cringe when she reads that I tried this will canned french style green beans - but that was all I had - couldn't get to the store for fresh beans and I wanted to jazz up canned beans. I have a few recipes that do that but I decided to try this. I used all the ingredients Annabel suggested - I ended up grinding the peppercorns with dried cilantro with my mortar (again-all I had at the time). Then I heated up the oil, added everything except for the drained canned beans - sauteed everything for 60 sec., then added the beans and heated through. No one suspected they were canned and everyone loved them. I ended up admitting I used canned and shared the recipe. Annabel, I will do you justice and do this again using the real thing next time. This is a keeper.

I added some hot mustard at the very end of this recipe to balance the sweetness a bit. Served this as a side dish at a party and everyone wanted the recipe.

so so so so good! this is my favorite recipe i've found so far on this site. my boyfriend says it tastes "gourmet". so much flavour! i recommend this to anyone. i believe this recipe would really impress any guests. you can adjust the spiciness by adjusting the amt of red chili.
