Flavors reminiscent of Chinese cooking thanks to the fresh bean sprouts in this quick to fix meal from My Great Recipes.

We call this the Chinese dish. It is very quick, ready in no time, I use french style green beans and do not use any corn starch, it did not need any. i also added thin sliced water chestnuts. Also just a dash of ginger as too much can over power the flavor.
