Easy and very tasty Asian side dish! I didn't steam the green beans (after adding the soy sauce and water) quite 5 minutes...I like my beans crisp-tender. Thank you!

I was very pleased to find this tonight as I had some pine nuts and fresh green beans to use up! Much to my dismay, I found that I did not have any garlic, so I decided to spice it up with Srirachi sauce (asian chile garlic sauce) and it turned out great! thanks whisper!
