    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    I love the green beans found on Chinese Restaurant buffets! They are the bomb! I could easily pay for the entire buffet and only eat the green beans! I found this recipe while searching for the technique online as I was told the secret was that they were Dry-Fried. Oh Yum! Thanks to Ronda Parkenson for the recipe I adapted. I found that I did not need as much oil when making this i reduced the oil amounts to what I used, if it does not look like enough for you, feel free to add more.

    Units: US | Metric



    • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
    • 1 tablespoon chopped ginger
    • 2 scallions, chopped, white part only
    • 1/2 teaspoon chili paste or 4 -6 small dried red chilies
    • 2 tablespoons peanut oil, for stir-frying more if needed
    • 1 teaspoon sesame oil, for stir-frying (can use peanut oil, your preference)


    1. 1
      Wash the green beans and pat dry with paper towel. Cut ends on the diagonal leaving beans long.
    2. 2
      Combine the sauce ingredients and set aside.
    3. 3
      Warm a wok over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons peanut oil. Drizzle oil down the sides of the wok.
    4. 4
      Once the oil is heated, add the green beans. Stir-fry for about 10 minutes, or until the skins pucker and turn brown and the green beans are tender (NOT mushy). Remove the beans from the wok.
    5. 5
      Over medium-high heat, heat 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Once the oil is hot, add the chopped garlic, ginger and scallions. Stir-fry briefly for a few seconds until aromatic. Add the chili paste or dried chili peppers.
    6. 6
      Add the sauce and the green beans to the wok. Toss and serve hot.

      DH and I really enjoyed these tasty beans! We served them as a side to a grilled miso-glazed steak. I used Shoaxing wine and just used a large non-stick skillet instead of a wok. This was fine. I copied this recipe into my keeper file and we will be having these again. Thanks!
