How to Make It

Cook haricots verts in boiling salted water to cover 1 minute; drain. Plunge green beans into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain well, pressing between paper towels. Stir together brown sugar, soy sauce, and dried crushed red pepper. Sauté bell pepper, onion, and green beans in hot peanut oil in a large skillet over high heat 3 to 5 minutes or until beans look blistered. Sprinkle with seasoned salt. Remove from heat; add soy sauce mixture to green bean mixture, and stir to coat.

We had a green and a red pepper so we used them both; we added another onion; because we love them so; and we doubled the sauce since we had so many more veges.  It was outstanding.

Made this for Valentine's Day, delicious and easy. Make sure not to overcook the greenbeans so they stay crisp when sauted with the pepper and onion.

I used frozen haricots (from Trader Joe's) that worked great. I have found the frozen alternatives are just as tasty and easier to come by. I do agree that this recipe makes green beans exciting and memorable.

Wow! These are really good - so glad I found the recipe. They would go perfect with an Asian type dinner, but I would have them anytime! A great alternative to standard green beans - I will be making these often. I did pour the brown sugar/soy sauce mixture onto the beans at the end on low temperature, just so everything would melt and coat the beans well.
