'Chinese Buffet' Green Beans

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by AnnieLynne

From allrecipes.com, but I need to post it here for safekeeping, because this recipe is amazing! I had to cook my beans longer than I thought to get them soft enough for my taste. So you might give yourself a little more time, depending on how you prefer your beans!

Cooking took a little longer than expected and required constant scraping and stirring to keep the sauce from burning, but finally the beans were crispy-soft and the drippings clung to them. Rich, sweet flavor in just enough sauce to coat the beans: we loved it!
