Though these delicate green beans are traditionally saved for fancy French preparations, they’re also perfect for a quick stir-fry. Jarred black bean sauce serves as a light base for the sauce while minced ginger and garlic impart a heady punch.

Whatever you do don't use Lee Kum Kee. It's utterly lacking in flavor and overly salty. It's worth the extra time to visit your local Chinese market to buy sauce with actual flavor.
I loved this recipe. Easy and delicious!
So delicious my guests ate every single bean and asked for the recipe!!!
Quick and good, although I thought there was a little too much garlic.
