If your tired of eating steamed green beans, try them this way next time! They're savory, slightly sweet, and slightly spicy. Delicious on the side of grilled chicken or steak or Chinese chicken wings. These are similar to the green beans served in Chinese buffets. If you can find them you can use those long Chinese green beans cut into 2 inch pieces. My new favorite way to eat green beans!
6 oz fresh breen beans, cleaned, trimmed, and cut at an angle into 2 inch pieces
1 green onion, including the green tops, sliced at an angle
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp Chinese chile paste (I used garlic chile paste)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp fresh ginger minced
1 tsp Splenda
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp sesame oil
3 tbsp oil, (peanut, vegetable, or coconut)
1. Heat a wok or medium pan to high heat. Add 2 tbsp of oil.
2. Add the green beans and stir fry for 6-7 minutes until they start to get a brown color but are still tender crisp, remove the green beans to a plate.
3. Add the remaining tbsp of oil to the pan. Add the garlic, ginger, and green onion. Lightly stir fry for a minute. Add the green beans back to the pan. Add the chile paste, soy sauce, Splenda, salt and pepper. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
4. Add sesame oil and serve.
