    The ingredients sounded promising and I really wanted to like this one, but the fish sauce was overpowering and the soy sauce made it too salty. I couldn't eat it.  -  30 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was awesome..the flavors really mingled together...I wasn't sure about it but I had everything and the fresh tomato liquified with the soy and fish sauce. This would be good to use with a bunch of different veggies like yellow squash, zucchini, mushrooms, celery, water chestnuts, etc...I used a splash of sesame oil and a bit of chicken broth while cooking since the green beans do take a little longer to cook...sprinkled toasted sesame seeds on top when finished....Try it!!!  -  27 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was great and delicious!!! I served it as a side dish and my family loved it! I added some stewed tomatoes to the greenbeans to give it a little zip. Thanks for the recipe and please post more vietnamese cuisine!  -  03 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
