Made this tonight for dinner. I've been searching for something like the Szechuan style green beans in get the Asian fusion restaurants here in Minneapolis. This one just about hit the nail right on the head. It was not as spicy as I'd like, I like SPICY foods so I'll probably add a quarter teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes but I loved the salty, spicy, sweet taste of the recipe. It was really outstanding and easy to make.
If you do it, don't bother steaming the beans, it's a total waste of time. Just sauté them with a little canola oil, a light sprinkle of salt and Black pepper, and add your sauce mixture at the end. This was my first time sautéing green beans and I overcooked them a bit. Just remember it takes a few minutes foe the sauce to reduce and there's quite a bit of steam while it does which accelerates the cooking of the beans. Put the sauce in a little earlier than you think.
