    Post Sauteed Green Beans

    Was wondering if anyone has a recipe for sauteed green beans like you get in Chinese restaurants. We have a place here that makes "to die for" green beans but I'm sure they are loaded with fat and calories. Does anyone have a recipe that would be similar to those? I'm not sure if all they do is simply saute them in a pan and add some butter/soy sauce or if there is anything more specific that they do. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks bunches!

    Here's one. But I'm looking for one I got fromm WW Years ago. I might call my old leader.

    Oriental Green Beans


    1 lbs. trimmed green beans\1 tbsp. oriental sesame oil\3 tbsp. soy sauce\1 Tbsp. garlic cloves\1 tsp. granulated sugar

    Cook green beans 4-5 minutes or until tender in a large pot of rapidly boiling water. Combine soy sauce, oil in small bowl while beans are cooking. Set aside. Drain beans. Set aside. Spray wok or 10" skillet with nonstick cooking spray; place over medium-high heat. Add garlic. Cook 20-30 seconds, stirring constantly, until sofened. Add green beans. Cook about 2 minutes, stirring and turning constantly, until well coated. Add soy sauce mixture. Continue to stir and turn about 1-2 minutes, until most of the liquids are absorbed. 4 servings 1 point each

    If you want to make this spicy like in Chinese restaurants, you need some of their dried peppers. You saute those in the oil for a few minutes, then add the green beans. The more peppers you use, the spicier the result.

    My lazy version of this is to spray a pan with olive oil, saute a bit of garlic, and then add green beans (or any other veggie), and then saute with a teaspon of sesame-chili oil and some soy sauce. It's quick, delicious, and 1 point.
