PF Chang's Style Spicy Green Beans

One of my favorite things on the menu at
are the spicy green beans.  
SO good!

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

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.

Looks delicious. My three year old loves green beans. I'll have to give this recipe a try.
