Szechuan Green Beans

Sundays are usually the day I post my menu for the week but for the next two weeks I am on vacation. So I am not making any commitments except to watch as much of this as possible.

In the meantime try these green beans with your dinner tonight. You can use a neutral oil and vary your spices to get whatever taste you want. Experiment with the cooking times until you find the perfect time for the perfectly done bean. I prefer the beans on the soft side.

Szechuan Green Beans

4 TBS dark sesame oil
2 lbs green beans, trimmed
8 cloves garlic, minced
½ tsp salt
crushed red pepper flakes, to taste

Place a heavy, deep skillet over medium-high heat. After a few minutes, add the oil and wait a minute or two before adding the green beans. Turn the heat to high and stir fry for about 5 minutes or until the beans are well seared. Add the garlic, salt and red pepper. Stir fry for several more minutes and then remove from the heat. 2-4 servings
