      I thought this recipe brought a lot of flavor to the beans - I had to improvise on the ketjap manis since I could not find any at the local asian food store - I used regular soy added a tsp of tomato paste and 1/2 packet of splenda and it came out great - I used a few extra chilies (LOL we really like it hot) made for family picks thanks!!!

      I made this just from the recipe, with no experience at all with indonesian food. It was not nearly as spicy as I expected. There's some strong flavors, but they are spread over a lot of beans, as well as the accompanying rice. We ended up using about half again as much ketjap manis just to be able to taste it at all. The beans cook more through steaming or boiling than stir frying. I would cut them a little smaller next time. Overall, it's not a real exciting recipe on it's own, but it's a simple approach to add a little variety to basic green beans.
