Who doesn’t like grean beans? I love them…cooked any which way! My favorite way to cook them is stir fried with soy sauce. They are so good and you can do them alone, with beef, chicken, shrimp….whatever you want. I usually do them as a side dish, and everyone I have made them for, just loves them. You can use frozen green beans, but of course fresh is best.
Asian Green Beans
1 or 2 lbs. fresh green beans
wee bit of oil
2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
Fresh ginger, grated (optional. just as good without)
a few good splashes of soy sauce
1 tablespoon Siracha (chili paste) or whatever HOT you have
Drizzle the oil in a large saute pan. Use a medium high heat. Add your green beans and stir around till you see a little bit of char. Add 1/4 cup water and cover your pan just for a couple of minutes. Remove the cover. Add the garlic and ginger…stir around, cooking until beans are the consistency that you like. Add soysauce and hot sauce. It will sizzle up, but stir till the soy sauce gets a bit of char and carmelized. That’s it!! So delicious.
