Oriental Green Beans

Oriental Green Beans created by Crafty Lady 13

Nice switch for the bean, make it as mild or as hot as you want. You can make this a veggie dish with a Chinese meal but I can assure you it has not seen China

    I've never tasted green beans this good, my only regret was not having more!

    One of my favorite items on the buffet at a Chinese restaurant is the green beans. These beans are very similar to the beans at the Chinese restaurant. I followed the recipe exactly and loved taste of these beans. A great change of pace from the usual green beans. Thanks for sharing!

    Exactly what I was looking for! This really is a nice twist on a widely forgotten vegetable. Even my little sis liked them. My one complaint was not enough soy sauce. I used two tablespoons and still would have liked a little more. Still, a great dish.

    Delicious! These beans are a lovely change from the ordinary! So glad I had sesame oil on hand - it really makes a difference! The "heat" was awesome! Don't change a thing!
