      A great way to make your green beans shine into a new taste. Didn't have the roasted red peppers so omitted. It would have been nice for color but a fresh red sweet pepper would have worked just as well if I had one. I did add a pinch of red pepper flakes, a rib of bock choy, a few sliced mushrooms, a tsp. of rice wine vinegar for a little extra bite, and a tiny bit of cornstarch to make sure the juice stuck to the veggies. Instead of almonds, I used the traditional sesame seeds that I toasted a few minutes in a small pan first. Very delicious and a great side dish to get in an additional green item into your daily intake. Definitely will make again! PS - If you don't have oyster sauce, use soy sauce or hoisin sauce instead. In addition, if you are using toasted sesame oil as I did, cook up your initial flavors in vegetable or peanut oil and add the toasted sesame right at the end for seasoning. I was taught that toasted sesame oil is for seasoning only as it has a low smoke point. It also smells so great that you want the aroma really fresh. Hope this all helps. Jim in So. Calif.

      This is one of the better ways I've had green beans. Was going to use some toasted sesame seeds but ran out of time. Didn't miss them though. The flavors were so good together. I did cut back on the sesame seed oil and used canola oil to cook the veggies then added a few drops of sesame oil just for flavor. Great recipe to add or subtract what you do and don't like. Thanks for the recipe!
