GREEN BEANS ORIENTAL
No one can make green beans as tasty as the Chinese can, but this is a good duplication by an Anglo.
1 lb trimmed green beans.
Boil these until they are just crisp-tender.
In the meantime, in a skillet place a little soy sauce, a few drops of sesame oil and some fresh chopped garlic. Add a smidgeon of sugar. Heat, stirring, until the garlic is soft, at which time throw in the drained green beans.
Stir until the liquid is mostly absorbed and the beans well coated. This will be just a matter of minutes.
Place them on a plate and serve. MM-MM-good!
This will serve 4.
Go easy with the sesame oil, as it is very potent stuff. But oh, it is so flavorful.
