This recipe is phenomenal. I've made it many times, varying the recipe each time (adding a bit of fresh ginger, removing the chile peppers, adding additional veggies, reducing oil, etc.) and it always turns out fantastic. It's quick, scalable, fairly healthy and delicious. Thank you, CeesHouse!
I cut the recipe in half & subbed about a tsp of horseradish for the mustard seeds. (it was the recommended sub for black mustard seeds by foodsubs.com). I used a dried chipotle chile pepper. Next time I will cut the pepper by half...it was very spicy. I even used more than the called for sugar to try & cut through the spicyness. Luckily, I served this w/ Mango Madness Salad (from this site) which really helped cool things off. I will make again but I will cut back on the chile. I loved the sugary garlic pieces...next time I am making some candied garlic cloves to use as a garnish. (boil about 10 cloves in a cup of water for about 8 minutes or until water is mostly gone. Add a couple of tbp of sugar & cook, stirring constantly until sugar is golden brown...turn out onto greased pan or parchment paper)
My new favorite green bean recipe! I cut way back on the oil (2 or 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil) and cooked this in a non-stick skillet. Everyone loved it. Next time I will have to double the recipe.
These were really good. I had a hard time finding black mustard seeds, but finally found them in an Indian market. I used crushed red pepper instead of the dried chilie pepper and it was plenty spicy. I did cut back on the oil as well.
I used 1 tsp mustard powder rather than the black mustard seed as I didn't have any on hand but this was FANTASTIC! Thank you for sharing!
I didn't have whole dried chilies, so I used some chili flakes - probably too many, it was too spicy to eat all of it. But the flavor was very good! I used 3/4 green beans and 1/4 corn, to balance the spicy flavor and for color.
Very good with beans fresh from the garden.
This is a very nice way to spice up plain old green beans. I had forgotten to add the salt and pepper and it was still wonderful!
