I recently went out to P F CHANG’s and had dinner. No, this wasn’t my it’s time but CLEARY it had been a while. They changed their menu! There was an item they had previously that I wanted to venture out and try but unfortunately I didn’t have that chance. I visited a location in Dallas, Texas.
One item that was either new or I had not ever tried was the Chili Green Beans. Ommmggg. They were sooooo good. As I’m sitting there with my Bourbon Sour, all I could think about was getting home and having these again. Now I had not asked anyone about them. I’m like seriously sitting there thinking about the wonderful flavors coating my tongue. I couldn’t wait to get home and try this for myself. I also had one of my favorites, the Ginger Chicken & Broccoli with white rice. I’m such a fan of ginger. I think it’s very underrated and not used enough. I must’ve been hungry because I scuffed all that food down ( smh lol).
I want to share with you MY recipe for this dish. I must say taste very similar. Even a client I help with meal preps enjoyed it as much as I.
2 Bulbs of Garlic
1tbsp Fresh Diced Ginger
2tbsp Soy Sauce
2tsp Red Chili Paste
2 tsp Chili Garlic Sauce
2tbsp Sweet Chili Sauce
2tsp Fish Sauce
1tsp Oyster Sauce
1tbsp Olive Oil ( you can use vegetable oil)
2cups Fresh Green Beans
Cut ends from the green beans. Sit in cold water for 30 minutes. Fill a pot with water (enough to cover green beans). Place green beans in and put pot over medium heat on the stove. Add salt. Allow to boil. This will allow for the beans to soften.
While the beans are cooking prep your sauce. Add remaining ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Place to the side or the refrigerator until ready for use. Once the beans come to a boil check the tenderness. Make sure it’s to your likings. I cooked about 6-7 minutes total. Remove from heat when ready. Add the sauce to a sauce pan it will start to come to a simmer, then add the green beans. Allow the flavors to incorporate and the green beans to cook a bit. I allowed them to simmer for ten minutes. Plate your dish and serve. I promise your kids will love them and come back for more.
