Spicy Green Beans

Green beans are anything but bland in this recipe. They are sweated with garlic, ginger, chilli and oyster sauce for a Chinese style side dish you will love.

This dish was fabulous. I didn't have fresh ginger so I substituted ground ginger and I added more than a "pinch" of red pepper. This was so good I made it three days in a row.

This is good! A nice change and an interesting way to use green beans. Because of what I had on hand, I made some alterations -- ground instead of fresh ginger; pinch 'a cayenne instead of red chile pepper; and omitted the oyster sauce. Still a good side dish, and I will make again. Thanks.

Less soy sauce next time, too salty, but husband LOVED it.

Excellent, just like the way restaurants serve them, although in the restaurant version the beans are deep fried first until the skin's shriveled. I only used 2 tbsp of oil and added a spring onion along with the garlic and ginger.

This was a very spicy and flavorful dish. You may want to adjust the red pepper to your own tastes though. My version turned out a little too spicy for me. I'll definetly make this again, but with less pepper next time!

Great, easy recipe! But I think of it more as a vegetable side dish, rather than a salad. Thanks!

This was a nice change of pace from regular old green beans. I served this with Thai Style Chicken Pasta (from this site) which made for a nice spicy meal. I didn't use the oyster sauce and I used frozen chopped green beans, but it still turned out great. I will make this again.

Really very good! I recommend using a light soy sauce, though. Fresh ginger is a must, in my opinion. I'm going to try this with other green veggies as well.

Not amazing, just pretty good. Made double and it went mighty fast with 7 people eating. Put in red chili flakes but not enough to give it more than a little flavour and left out the oyster sauce as I discovered I didn't have any in the kitchen. Better than just steaming them by far.
