  1. Heat the peanut oil in a wok or skillet with high sides over medium-high heat until almost smoking; add the green beans. Quickly cook and stir the beans in the hot oil until they are bright green and starting to show brown spots, about 2 minutes. Remove the beans to a bowl. Drain all but 2 tablespoons of oil from the pan and return to heat. Cook and stir the ginger and garlic in the oil until they have started to brown, about 2 minutes. Return the green beans to the wok; add the dark soy sauce, sugar, and black pepper. Cook until hot; about 30 more seconds.

These are amazing! I didn't have fresh garlic or ginger, so I used powdered. It worked out just fine, I am sure fresh would have been better. I am so glad this recipe was posted. I go to our local Chinese restaurant to get their green beans, now I don't have to! I am going to add some cubed tofu in the next time...I am sure it will make a great main dish! :) Thanks!

These were excellent. I did make one change since I was cooking on my grill using a side burner. I steamed the beans for several minutes, then just used a small amount of oil to follow the rest of the steps. We really enjoyed these and I will make them again.

Perfect! I didn't have a whole lb of beans so I kinda tweaked the other ingredients as best I could, and they turned out amazing! I added a pinch of chili flakes for additional zip.
