      BEWARE - the chili flake measurement for this recipe is off by quite a bit. This was my first time making this. Generally if I'm trying a recipe for the first time, I follow it exactly, then make notes on my recipe and alter it the next time I make it. However this calls for 2 tablespoons of chili flakes. I cook a lot of Asian dishes and I have never used that much in one dish before. I cut it in half to 1 tablespoon. It was still so spicy we ended up throwing it out. I was pretty bummed because I used my first pound of garden beans on this dish. After dinner I decided to look up similar recipes to see if I am just a huge wimp (which I'm not, we love spice in this house!) or if it was just a giant typo. All of the other recipes I have found that have the same exact ingredients call for 1/2 TEASPOON of chili flakes. The dish has potential so I will be trying it again, but with 1/6th of the chili flakes it originally calls for.

      Great flavor and it's very legit! I think Tina meant 2 teaspoons of chili flakes instead of 2 tablespoons. I only added 1 teaspoon and the spicy kick was enough for us. I also added a little dark soy sauce. Served it over quinoa. All in all, this is a very good recipe. Will make it again.

      It was a very good recipe and copy of the original. But the dish was way too spicy. I think 1-2 tsp. of the pepper flakes would be sufficient.
