One of my favorite things on the menu at
are the spicy green beans.
I tried out a copy cat recipe (with a few changes) this evening and I thought for a moment
that I really was at PF Chang's. :-)
Spicy Green Beans
adapted from food.com.
1 pound fresh green beans
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
1/2 tablespoon fresh garlic, chopped finely
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
Rinse and trim beans.
Combine soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, and red pepper; set aside.
Heat water in saucepan over high heat and simmer beans until crisp tender; 4-5 minutes.
Remove and drain beans.
Add sesame oil to sauce pan. Sautee ginger and garlic; 1-2 minutes.
Add green beans and sautee until beans are tender; 3-4 minutes.
Add sauce to pan, heat and stir until sauce thickens and glazes the beans.
