      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.

      This is so yummy and a great comfort food. If you like soy sauce type dishes, you'll like this. I used ground turkey, 1 onion, and no bean sprouts. I also added some Worcestershire sauce. I used olive oil to saute the veggies. The dish is not saucy, but the flavor really stands out. Great dish! Thanks.
