My favorite dish at my local chinese restaurant is Mala Green Beans with Beef. So I've been looking for a similar restaurant. This one gets close on the flavors, I just have to refine how to include the beef to get it more flavorful. I did add largely cut jalapenos and roughly cut cremini mushrooms to the recipe, along with some grated ginger, which I love.
