What a yummy way to enjoy green beans!! I made 1/2 of the recipe, as DH was out of town last night, and followed as written. I wasn't sure weather I would enjoy peanut butter with green beans, but with the other ingredients it was delicious. It was a nice salty flavor to the beans. Thanks for sharing a new delicious way to prepare green beans. Made for ZWT 9.

Used this recipe as a side dish with Thai jasmine rice cooked with half water half coconut milk, and a whole brown trout baked in a Thai marinade and finished under the grill to crisp the skin. I was in a rush and didn't read the recipe properly, so simply added the minced shallot and grated ginger to the other ingredients - without cooking them! It didn't seem to affect anyone's enjoyment of the dish at all - thankfully! To top it, as suggested, I used some peanuts from a local Asian store - described as "Khao Shong Tom Yum coated peanuts". These were an excellent addition. I'll definitely use this recipe again. Oh, yes... nearly forgot: the only peanut butter we had in was Skippy smooth, and it was lovely.

This was tasty but everyone prefers green beans plain. Served with Asian chicken and rice for a SE Asian meal. Made for ZWT9.

Made as part of a Thai meal, this was a huge hit! We have a ton of green beans in our garden this year, and hubby says he will gladly eat beans this way every day. I'm a green beans and ham hocks girl, but I will be eating these all summer long as well! Thanks Diva Paula, your recipes are always sure to please! ZWT9

This was a wonderful way to make green beans. Used fresh from the garden beans and organic peanut butter. We will definitely make this again.

This was so easy and so tasty. I was making a Thai dinner with a chicken dish, a shrimp dish, and jasamin rice. Even though both main's had vegetables in them, I wanted to make a vegetable side dish. When I read this, I wasn't too sure I'd like it- the idea of peanut butter and green beans seemed wierd to me. I'm so glad I gave it a go. We all loved it and will be making this often. Thanks for a great recipe!

This was good. The only thing I might do differently is half the oyster sauce next time...personal preference.

Delicious! We loved the complexity of the sauce, the fresh ginger and peanut butter were the stars of this dish, but did not overpower any of the other flavors. I used the higher amount of red pepper flakes and it was a nice amount of heat. The only I would do differently next time is eliminate the shallot; we used 1/2 the amount and it was still overpowering for me. I'd probably sub with garlic instead. Thanks Paula for a wonderful Asian veggie side! Made for ZWT6.

This was very good - I added a squeeze of lime to cut some of the heavier tastes, and a teaspoon of Splenda (I used unsweetened peanut butter)

It was just DH and I for lunch today and we have tons of fresh green beans in our garden and enjoy spicy Thai dishes - this was just the ticket! I used fish sauce instead of oyster sauce as I usually do in Thai dishes. Made a great Asian themed lunch today served with leftover Sesame Noodles. I steamed the beans 3 min in my 1200wt microwave and they were done to our liking. I used regular peanut butter and did need to add several tablespoons of water in order for the sauce to become creamy. Would make again! Made for ZWT4.
