Spicy Green Bean Stir Fry

I've never eaten at PF Chang's but my son is especially fond of their green beans, apparently they're worth the hour drive to get them... Since my planter gave me a bunch of beans a quick Google was in order, it told me I had all the ingredients on hand.  My only change, I saw this as an opportunity to use some of the sweet red chili sauce in the fridge instead of dry flakes and sugar. While my Spicy Green Bean Stir Fry might not be authentic, it sure is tasty:@)

Spicy Green Bean Stir Fry-adapted from
1 lb green beans, washed and trimmed
1/4 C water
2 Tblsp grated ginger
2 Tblsp garlic, thinly sliced
2 Tblsp cooking oil-I used vegetable

2 Tblsp soy sauce
1 Tblsp rice wine vinegar
2 Tblsp sweet red chili sauce
  1. Mix sauce, set aside.
  2. Boil water in wok, add beans, cook for 3-5 minutes, drain.
  3. Heat wok over high heat, add oil, ginger and garlic, cook until fragrant.
  4. Add beans, stir constantly until beans are soft, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add sauce, stir until it thickens and glazes beans.
  6. Serve with rice if desired.
Have a happy day:@)
