Szechuan Green Beans With Ground Pork

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Golden Sunflower

This is a bit spicy so you may want to decrease the pepper flakes and add more at the end for taste. I made this for a pot-luck Chinese dinner that is why the serving size is for 8. Can be cut in half. Delicious over Chinese white rice.

Better than any restaurant take-out I've ever had. I plan to double the sauce next time to pour over rice. Also, I will try steamed broccoli instead of green beans...personal preference. Can't wait to try this with modifications! thanks for the recipe!
