      Great base recipe. I made it with a few tweaks:

      Boiled the beans for 4 minutes rather than frying them.

      Used ham instead of ground pork.

      Added a bit of corn starch to thicken the sauce at the end.

      Doubled the recipe.

      Loved this recipe! I omitted the pork though, and steamed the beans before sauteing them.

      Just delicious. I left out the pork and all oils. Used Pam to spray the large skillet and "fry" the beans. Then added broth,extra soy sauce,garlic and sugar Covered for about 10 minutes. My family does not like "crist" beans so cooked them longer than suggested. Family and guests were very complimentary. Thanks ebechan.
