Whenever we go for a Chinese meal, we always order the spicy green beans.
Also, traveling through Beijing (in about 2005... do you like how I casually throw out there that we travelled through China... it was, like, the highlight of our traveling experiences anywhere, and was nothing but casual for us... it was totally awesome!), the green beans were one of our favorite dishes. Well, actually, there were lots of favorite dishes in Beijing, the food was incredible, but the green beans were amazing.
AND, we have a whole bunch of green beans growing in our community garden. I was so excited when last week, I went to the garden, and not only was our corn literally taller than me overnight, the green beans seemed to have sprouted magically overnight too. It appears a little community garden fairy was working very hard in my little patch while I was sleeping. And so, we had a wonderful over abundance of green beans in our kitchen all of a sudden... and with a continual hankering for Spicy Green beans - chinese style - my fingers got to work looking for good recipes.
We've tried many types of Chinese spicy green beans, BUT our absolute favorite have pork. And so, when looking for the best Chinese spicy green bean recipe to try at home, I scrolled through quite a few before I landed on this beauty. This recipe is EASY and so, so, so, so yummy.
