Szechuan Green Beans...HELP!

ItalianNana | Mar 24, 2013 07:12 PM

Am I the last person on the planet never to have made Szechuan Green Beans? Inspired by foodieX2's enthusiasm on the "Relying on old cookbooks" thread, I googled, I found 2 very different ingredient recipes. The first called for:

1 lb french green beans, ends trimmed
5 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp red wine
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, minced
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 tsp fresh ginger, minced
5 tbsp scallions, minced
2 tsp red pepper flakes

The second was:
6 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
2 quarter-size slices fresh ginger, peeled
2 scallions
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp hot red-pepper flakes
1 Tbsp tamari soy
1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 pound green beans, tipped and tailed

Is either of theses close to how you do it?
