2 handfuls of fresh green beans - de-stemmed
2 cloves of garlic - chopped/mashed
1 green onion - finely diced
Toasted sesame seeds
Blanch green beans in boiling water for 60 seconds then strain and dunk in ice water till cool. Drain and set aside.
Heat a saute pan/wok over high heat then add a small amount of a neutral cooking oil (canola, grape seed, peanut) and green beans. Cook for about 1 minute. Add garlic and green onion and continue to cook till green beans are tender (varies according to taste).
To finish, add 2 tablespoons oyster sauce, 1 teaspoon soy sauce (I prefer “light soy” also known as usukuchi- not “low sodium” soy), chili garlic sauce to taste (rooster sauce is preferred). Cook 30 seconds more to blend and add sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds.
