About this recipe: Chinese-style green beans with lots of flavour! This recipe is made for a large party; but it can be scaled down for a family dinner. Serve cold or warm.
Very tasty! I scaled back to 4 servings :-) and used peanut oil. As I was heating the oil I tossed in about a 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes to give it some more spice and I ended up omitting the black bean sauce because they looked so good as is I just plain forgot to add it. Would be good with some toasted sesame seeds sprinkled on near the end, too. - 30 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I can't believe I was able to make this delicious asian dish! I've never tried making anything like this before, and it turned out marvelously! I scaled it back to 4 servings and, since I don't have a wok, used a great big fry pan--it worked great! I covered it for the last 10 minutes and let it 'steam' and it seemed like it cooked the string beans more thoroughly. - 24 Jun 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have always love this dish when eating out at Chinese restaurants. It was really great to discover this recipe so that I could make it at home whenever I want. Sometimes I add cooked chicken breast or shrimp to this dish if I am craving some protein. - 28 Jan 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
