This was a nice way to serve the overabundance of green beans that I harvested from the garden this summer. I will definitely make it again. Green beans can tend to be bland but this recipe added a nice flavor while still being healthy.

I really loved this combination. The green beans turned out perfectly and the sauce was so delicious. I used water chestnuts and thought it paired beautifully. A yummy way to get some extra veggies! Thank you.

Unfortunately, these green beans did not turn out very tastey. I had high hopes, since I love green beans, garlic, and sesame oil. For some reason, these just didn't meet expectations. Made for Potluck tag game.
