Stir-Fried Green Beans

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by DrGaellon

Adapted from a recipe by Jackie O. at Can substitute hoisin sauce for the black bean sauce for a different flavor. If you have "black bean and garlic sauce", reduce or eliminate the garlic! Adjust the amount of red pepper flakes to taste.

I used spicy brown bean sauce and added a little vegetable broth so the green beans could cook down a little. I really enjoyed the flavors. Thanks! Made for PAC-Fall 2009.
