Chinese Green Beans

I love Chinese food.   You should know this about me.  I love having lunch at our local Chinese restaurant where they serve crispy noodles and duck sauce and don’t glare at me when I ask for seconds or thirds.   So today while contemplating what to do with our fresh green beans for lunch, I decided to sauté them up and serve over rice.  I’m  so happy I did, what a keeper this recipe is! In less than 20 minutes, less if you aren’t making rice, you will have a delicious meal.

Full recipe behind the cut.

Servings: 2
1 and a half teaspoons sesame oil
1/2 pound green beans (cut the ends off)
1 carrot (optional)
1 clove garlic, cut up
1 and a half teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce

Wash your beans and carrot.  Peel your carrot. Carrots are optional but I think it’s a great addition.
Start cooking your rice if you are serving rice with this dish.
Heat a large pan to medium/high heat, heat up your sesame oil.
Once the pan is hot, add in your garlic and sauté until brown.
Add your green beans, cook for 5 minutes.
Stir in oyster sauce, soy sauce and sugar. Mix around.
Cook for 3-5 more minutes, until they’re done how you like.
Serve – enjoy!

Easy! Done! Delicious!

Serve with some miso soup if you’d like.  You can make it from scratch or buy it.  I love these packets.
