SO HOW'D IT GO?

I followed to a t, except for the sugar, a little mushroom,  then added some arrowroot. It was delicious. I served it with beet salad, corn chowder, chick pea-tomato salad and fruit-berry crumble. The tastes of summer.

Great recipe! Very easy and tasty. I added some portabella mushrooms . They soaked up the flavor really well.

This is really great recipe - simple and easy! My boyfriend loves chinese-style string beans and I wanted to recreate a similar taste. I followed the recipe exactly and served it over brown rice as the main dish. I will be making this again! Especially in the summer when the farmer's markets are full of fresh green beans!
