I submitted this recipe originally. It was supposed to be 1 1/2 teaspoons not tablespoons.



Very good!! The only thing I would mention is to make sure your fresh green beans are VERY FRESH. If they are old, they don't get tender enough when cooked like this. The whole family loved it, even the toddler. Quick and delish!

My husband and I made this for dinner together last night. We first sauteed a half an onion, than we browned 1 lb of beef seasoned per the recipe. (Ginger amount should say teaspoons) We than added the soy and honey mixture and the green beans. We noticed that since we added more meat there wasn't enough liquid to simmer, so we added about another 2 tbsp of soy sauce and another tbsp of honey. Since we adjusted these amounts, I added a few more pinches of ginger and pepper. We served it over white rice and we absolutely loved it. This has the perfect amount of spice, and we were thinking of other ways to make it again. We both decided next time to try it with shredded carrots and snow peas. Thank you so much for this recipe, we really enjoyed it and are both looking forward to the leftovers for lunch!
