MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 21, 2014

We love green beans prepared this way. I use 1/2 sesame oil, 1/2 canola and a splash of soy sauce instead of salt. Easy and so yummy!

Really easy and really delicious! Used frozen beans, boiled them first, and it turned out great! These ordinary ingredients make an extraordinary side dish!

These green beans are fabulous! I bought them in a microwaveable bag (fresh not frozen), cooked them just under the suggested time. I also added a little soy sauce to the mixture. Then sautéed for just a few minutes. My husband an both loved them, they are already on next weeks menu with Grilled Pork Milanese.

I would recommend trying the Tasty Onion Chicken pictured with it, also delicious!

One of our favorites. I, too, boil my beans first so it's a faster stir fry. We love the red pepper flakes. I've also stir fried them in bacon grease and they are great. And when I don't have fresh beans available canned beans work just as well. Great recipe. Super easy.
