"A great way to make string beans..like the way they do in Chinese restaurants...only better! Also good with asparagus or broccoli.
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

These are amazing! I didn't have fresh garlic or ginger, so I used powdered. It worked out just fine, I am sure fresh would have been better. I am so glad this recipe was posted. I go to our local Chinese restaurant to get their green beans, now I don't have to! I am going to add some cubed tofu in the next time...I am sure it will make a great main dish! :) Thanks!
These were excellent. I did make one change since I was cooking on my grill using a side burner. I steamed the beans for several minutes, then just used a small amount of oil to follow the rest of the steps. We really enjoyed these and I will make them again.
Perfect! I didn't have a whole lb of beans so I kinda tweaked the other ingredients as best I could, and they turned out amazing! I added a pinch of chili flakes for additional zip.
These were very good. Lots of flavor and a little heat from the ginger. I used frozen thin whole green beans, I didn't cut them up. I used minced ginger from a jar and minced garlic from a jar and lots of fresh ground black pepper. I didn't have peanut oil so I used vegetable and then at the end added a couple of drops of sesame oil for the nut flavor. Everyone liked this dish. Thanks for a great recipe!
These green beans had great flavor, but the cook time wasn’t quite long enough. I questioned rather I should blanch or steam the beans for about 2-3 minutes before adding to the wok. I should have followed my instincts and done so. I cooked the beans in the wok for 4-5 minutes with the first cooking and another 2 minutes with the second cooking. They were still pretty crunchy (raw kind of crunchy, not good cooked kind of crunchy). The flavor was wonderful and the cooking method was easy to follow, but I will par cook the beans when I make them again. I served these with ‘Take The Night Off Slower Cooker Pineapple Chicken’ and white rice. We enjoyed a delicious meal and I would make both recipes again.
These are tasty! I used frozen beans and light soy sauce, otherwise, kept the recipe the same. The green bean flavour comes out, as well as the spices. Yum!
These were absolutely delicious!!
These green beans were so good. I have three children who are very picky eaters and they all ate these. Wonderful and full of flavor!
