Leslie's Green Beans
It was great. Ginger was in two and green onions in three of the dishes helping to tie the flavors together.
Without further adieu,
Leslie's Green Bean Recipe
1 lb green beans, trimmed
6 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
oil for frying
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 large green onion, thinly sliced
2 T rice wine vinegar
2 t sugar
2 T sesame oil
2 T water
Fry the green beans in oil, 10-12 at a time, until blistered, but not brown. Drain and put into serving bowl. Repeat until all the beans are cooked. Mix together the remaining ingredients (soy sauce - water) until sugar in dissolved. Pour over the beans. Top with bacon crumbles and serve.
Another note, one of the benefits of writing a food blog is the new friends you meet that you know you have something in common with. The second is the collection of recipes that you build for yourself. I now find it easier to go to my website to find recipes. It's great.
I think this qualifies for Weekend Herb Blogging, hosted this week by the esteemed founder Kalyn at Kalyn's Kitchen. Be sure to check back in for the roundup to get new ideas for recipes from foodies around the world. It's better than some food magazines.
