    Very good, very easy, frying garlic smelled heavenly. Might be good with another tsp of sugar added to caramelize in the high heat. Would be great with some fried rice too. Try the "Not Fried Rice" recipe for a healthy version. - 8/12/08

  • Just about the only thing my wonderful husband doesn't care for is green beans. He liked this dish. I'll be doing it again. I steamed the beans rather than boiling, but I can't think it would make much difference - 7/14/12

  • Came out a tad mushy...may have boiled them a little too long, but otherwise, they were great! - 3/5/11
