We make this with the green beans we grow in our garden in the summer. We are always looking for different ways to use up our home-grown veggies than the usual. I've adapted this recipe to my family's tastes. It's not too spicy for me, and not spicy enough for The Hubs! Adjust the sambal at the table for those who like a bigger "kick!" This recipe makes a lot, but is easily halved.
