Sauteed Green Beans

Recommended Posts

Guest B.G. Falcon

Was wondering if anyone has a recipe for sauteed green beans like you get in Chinese restaurants. We have a place here that makes "to die for" green beans but I'm sure they are loaded with fat and calories. Does anyone have a recipe that would be similar to those? I'm not sure if all they do is simply saute them in a pan and add some butter/soy sauce or if there is anything more specific that they do. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks bunches!

If you want to make this spicy like in Chinese restaurants, you need some of their dried peppers. You saute those in the oil for a few minutes, then add the green beans. The more peppers you use, the spicier the result.

My lazy version of this is to spray a pan with olive oil, saute a bit of garlic, and then add green beans (or any other veggie), and then saute with a teaspon of sesame-chili oil and some soy sauce. It's quick, delicious, and 1 point.
