Wok Seared Green Beans w/Cantonese Sauce
The success of this recipe depends on having fairly small, uniformly sized beans. Larger, tougher beans take longer to cook.
2 Tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1 pound fresh green beans, washed, trimmed, and patted dry
4 cloves garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon salt
pinch crushed red pepper
Heat oil in wok over high heat. Add beans and stir fry until beans are well-seared, about 10 minutes. It may help to let the beans sit for 10 seconds at a time, rather than continuously stir-frying. Add garlic, salt, and crushed red pepper and sauce mixture. Stir fry for 2 minutes until garlic is soft and sauce thickens. Serve immediately.
