Nice switch for the bean, make it as mild or as hot as you want. You can make this a veggie dish with a Chinese meal but I can assure you it has not seen China

This was an extremely good dish. I substituted canned green beans and it still came out great. I served it as a side dish with #30433 Pineapple Chicken Lo Mein and got raves.

I've never tasted green beans this good, my only regret was not having more!

These beans are fantastic! I left out the vegetable oil and just used the sesame oil. Great flavour and a new favourite.
