peanut oil for frying
fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
minced fresh ginger root
1 1/2 teaspoons
dark soy sauce
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.
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!
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 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 green beans were so good. I have three children who are very picky eaters and they all ate these. Wonderful and full of flavor!
This was a quick and easy side dish. My boyfriend said he's never tasted anything so good that was green. Great side for my asian themed dinner!
My husband and son hated fresh green beans until I made these. So glad I tried it! Now they ask for these at least once a week.
