This is a terrific recipe. I also used green beans, and substituted cooking sherry for the rice wine, and dried chili peppers for the fresh ones. I found this really worked, my family really enjoyed it and I was impressed with the full flavour that it offered. In the future I would use half the sherry as it had a very strong flavour, but all in all I was extremely satisfied and might just make it again tonight! Thanks for sharing!

Parboiled quickly, used sake instead of shaoxing wine. Used 1 tsp of red pepper flakes and 1/2 tsp of red chili garlic bean paste. I would reduce the heat, as this was pretty spicy... :) Trial and Error, very good the fresh ginger really counter acts the spiciness. Thank you for posting.
