    These were DELICIOUS!!!! The best green bean recipe ever! I didn't have garlic chili sauce, only a popular brand chili sauce and it was still delicious. I added an extra clove of garlic to try to compensate. I used olive oil instead of canola, and I skipped steaming them. My husband and I like our green beans on the crunchier side, so I just cooked them in the skillet with the oil and garlic, then when they were about done added the rest of the mixture. I cooked for maybe 2 minutes more and it was perfect!  -  07 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    The chili sauce in this recipe is not the flavor of spiced-up ketchup or a bowl of chili. It's the ORIENTAL sauce in a jar: chili garlic sauce. I didn't have any, but it was still pretty good. Not spicy at all, but that's to be expected. I'll try this one again with all the ingredients. (WOW, I can add to this review weeks later! :D) Got the right ingredient - chili garlic sauce - & it is very good. This is one we'll use over & over. My three stars earlier is now four & a half. What the heck, I'll give it a five. This one's good.  -  12 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    5+ I served it for dinner and we liked it. I had made quite a bit since we love green beans. The next day I took the leftovers out and tasted it while it was cold. I loved it!!! I served it that way to our company and they loved it too and wanted the recipe. I am planning to make a tray of it and serve it cold as part of the appetizers for the next cookout. You can't go wrong with this recipe - either warm or cold! Thanks submitter.  -  08 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
