Reviews for Thai-Style Green Beans

Hubby liked this recipe. I wasn't wild about it.
Really enjoyed this recipe...it made a perfect side with vegan Thai pineapple fried rice, and provided a use for the vegetarian hoisin sauce that has been languishing in my pantry. Salty, sweet, crispy, spicy; in the tradition of Thai cooking, this recipe has it all. Thanks so much; will definitely make again!
I thought this was good. I love Mala String Beans when we go out for Chinese food. Can't quite figure out what makes it so special. Tonite we added chicken to this, also rice, also the peanuts. It still needed some zing. Perhaps next time we will add jalapeno peppers to it for some spice.
This is a pretty classic Thai style recipe, with the exception of the cilantro. I don't know if it's because I'm from the Southwest, but cilantro is something I connect with Mexican food. It has a flavor all its own. But, oh yeah baby, you gotta add the chopped dry roasted peanuts to this one. Yummy!
I tried this based on the positive reviews and yuck! I did not like the combination of ingredients in the sauce - the taste was odd and overpowering and the consistency of the sauce with the green beans was odd.
