Yaletown Spicy Beans


Scroll to the bottom for more details!



¼ cup olive oil

2 tablespoons hoisin sauce

2 tablespoons oyster sauce

13 teaspoons sambal oelek (Asian chili paste) to taste. Start with 1 tsp and adjust as necessary depending on how spicy you like it.

1 clove garlic, crushed


Mix all ingredients together. These measurements are general guidelines. You can adjust the amount according to how many beans you’re preparing. The important thing is 2 parts olive oil, 1 part hoisin sauce, 1 part oyster sauce. The sambal oelek and garlic are to taste.

Lightly steam the beans until barely tender. Pour sauce over and serve. These can be served hot or at room temperature and make a great finger food appetizer.

This is our family’s favorite green bean recipe, and it comes from a restaurant in Yaletown. (My friend sweet-talked the server into sharing the recipe.)
