  1. Oriental Green Beans

    by Mark Dorian
    (San Diego, CA)

    I browsed oriental green bean recipes for a half hour, but none of them turned me on. So I decided to wing it. Glad I did. Turned out great. Here’s the recipe:

    1 pound green beans (the younger the better)
    2 Tablespoons vegetable oil, with a dash of dark sesame oil
    1/2 cup of drippings from sauteed portobello mushrooms
    1 teaspoon beef powder
    1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    2 teaspoons sugar
    1 Tablespoon soy sauce
    dash of ginger (grated or powder)
    dash of pepper

    Snip off ends of beans, put whole beans in plastic bag with 1 tablespoon water. Tie the end of bag. Microwave 3 minutes. Be careful – that steam is superheated. Let it cool a little. Toss beans in ice water.

    Drain and dry the beans. Saute in hot oil for one minute. Add sauce. Serve.
