Now that I have discovered Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, I am constantly looking for new recipes this spoon smacking good stuff to incorporate it into. Today it is Thai Sweet Chili Green Beans.
Crushed garlic instead of garlic slices and red pepper flakes were omitted. Not wanting an excessively sweet green bean, only a 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce was used.
Scaled for Likability: Great
Brightly green pole beans covered in a sticky salty sweet spicy garlic sauce, what else is there to say. The only way this side dish would have been better was to have used fresh off the vine green beans. These beans had been in the fridge for close to a week and were not at full crunch level. Served alongside a hot bowl of steamed white rice or simple fried rice, this side dish could also be a meal all unto itself.
