When I visit a Chinese buffet (which admittedly is quite often, especially when my msg levels feel dangerously low) I head straight for those long, seasoned, glistening green beans. I’m a green bean lover anyway, I’ll eat em right out of a can when I get a chance even.
I was craving them this week and almost ordered take out just for them but instead I tried to make em at home. And you know what? They turned out better!
It was easy and that’s great – right?
Buy a big ole bag of snap beans from the market.
Have your little people wash them and snap off the ends. They loved this! They didn’t love sweeping up the kitchen floor afterwards but that’s the way it is.
Gather your ingredients. I tweaked the recipe and used what I had on hand. They tasted almost like the buffet but better. Score!
2 tablespoons of minced garlic, if I had a bulb I would have used a couple cloves of it sliced thin.
1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 tablespoons fish or oyster sauce
2 teaspoons soy sauce
