Fresh beans from our garden inspired this recipe for today’s meatless Monday. We had a favorite Chinese restaurant for years and we loved their green beans. They changed owners and we can no longer get them. So It has been an ongoing challenge to try to recreate those yummy take away beans. I hope you like these.
What You need
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic (minced)
¼ cup fresh ginger ( minced)
tsp crushed red pepper
1 lb fresh green beans ( cleaned and Trimmed)
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp oyster sauce
Large non stick skillet or wok with lid
Lets Make It ! In a large frying pan or wok, heat oil over medium high heat. Stir in the garlic, ginger and crushed red pepper. As the garlic and ginger begin to “sweat” ( softened not browned) add beans, toss well to coat and cover and reduce heat. Let simmer for about 5 to 8 minutes (add a few tablespoons of water if it looks a bit dry) Remove cover, increase heat to high; add soy sauce and oyster sauce and stir for two – five minutes until sauce thickens.
