    sofie-a-toast's Note:

    An authentic Chinese dish, that happens to be one of my very favorites. I searched a long time for one that tasted restaurant quality and was easy to make! You can subsitute long beans cut into 3 inch segments for the green beans to make it even more authentic.

      The 'dressing' on these beans was fabulous! My kids ate them up so this is a 5* recipe for us!

      Excellent recipe for one of my favorite dishes, this comes out better than what you get in many American Chinese restaurants. Typically the restaurant versions have too much sauce; this one just ends up with a coating which intensifies the flavor. I usually put in about 8 ounces of sliced crimini or shiitake mushrooms in step 3 and stir fry for a minute before adding the garlic, ginger and scallions.
