  • Cusine



1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into halves or thirds

2 T soy sauce

1 T rice vinegar

2 tsp. sweetener of your choice

red pepper flakes

1/4 tsp. white pepper

1 T vegetable oil

2 T minced garlic

2 T peeled and minced ginger root


Wash green beans if needed, trim the ends, and cut beans into halves or thirds if they are large. Mix together soy sauce, rice vinegar, sweetener of your choice, red pepper flakes, and white pepper. Mince garlic enough to make 2 T minced garlic. Peel ginger root and mince enough to make 2 T minced ginger. Use a large frying pan with a tight-fitting lid and heat over high heat. When the pan is hot, add the beans and 1/4 cup water; cover and cook on medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes or until the beans are bright green and starting to get tender. Remove the lid and continue to cook until the water is all evaporated. Add the oil and minced garlic and ginger and cook about 2 minutes, stirring several times so the garlic and ginger don’t burn. Add the soy sauce mixture, let it come to a boil and cook about 2 minutes more, until the sauce thickens and coats the beans and beans are tender-crisp. Serve hot or at room temperature.
