    Instead of water I used 1 can of beef broth, and added 2 tbsp of brown sugar, and one extra tbsp of soy sauce. I also used fresh green beans instead of frozen, and boiled a little longer for the beans to cook. Since the sauce thickened on its own while boiling, I ditched the corn starch. I served over rice with sesame seeds and crushed red pepper. Perfecto!

    Had a pound of ground beef and was looking for something quick & easy to do with it since it was getting well past the 'sell by' date. Found this recipe, and SO glad I did! The only change I made was to use the 'juice' from the meat/green bean mixture to mix with the cornstarch instead of water -- retained the taste of the dish without adding extra liquid and a cornstarch taste. I'll definitely make this again. Thank you for posting!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

(As many of you know Silent Cricket passed away on Feb. 29. Since she loved Recipezaar so much and so many on Recipezaar have shown their love for her, and have enjoyed her recipes, her personal information will remain here indefinitely just as she wrote it. Her lines at the end of this section sound somewhat prophetic as the last chapter of her earthly existence has been written.) Well, the time has come for me to change my users' name. After being, "OzCoMartha" because of having lived for three years in Australia and then moving to Colorado, I have decided to "turn over a new leaf." I chose this name because many moons ago I used to be able to "chirp" like a cricket and the "silent" refers to the present time when I'm taking a break...But, perhaps after a season, however long I decide that needs to be, I may be back and then I will fill in more details about myself...
