Made this recipe and cook time was perfect! I didn’t have red pepper flakes but did have chili oil so used it instead. The flavors were great but I would double the amounts to enhance the flavors. Read More

Maybe it's my air fryer but the green beans NEVER cooked even when I doubled the time. Awful! Read More

The only change I made was to add freshly grated Romano cheese when they were done. I'm not a fan of green beans.........until now. Will also make a great healthy snack Read More

I doubled the recipe using 2 lbs of green beans. I substituted 1/4 water + 3/4 white vinegar for rice wine vinegar. I cooked a total of 15 mins. I shook every 5 mins. Next time I will not double red pepper flakes. Too spicy for some in my family but not for me. Read More

OH my! I think these are the best green beans that I have ever made. I used light olive oil instead of sesame oil (not a fan) and Trader Joe's coconut aminos instead of soy sauce. I put these back into the original dish that I marinated them so that they were coated in the remaining marinade. I think cooking time and temp is different for different air fryers. I have the Gourmia that they sell at Costco. I cooked them at 400 for five minutes and then decreased the temp down to 300 and cooked for another 5 minutes. Read More
