4 Tbsp. Chinese Sesame Oil
2 lbs. fresh green beans, trimmed
8 cloves garlic, minced½ tsp. salt
Crushed red pepper, optional
Yellow, Orange, &/or Red peppers
Place a med/lg. wok or heavy deep skillet over med./high heat. After a minute, add the sesame oil. Wait a minute or so and add the green beans. Turn the heat to high and stir-fry for about 5 min. or until the beans are well seared. Add garlic and salt (and optional crushed red pepper). Stir fry for several more min. then remove from heat. Serve hot, warm, or at room temp. Makes a great Hors D’oeuvre or side dish. For Fall – sauté yellow, orange and red pepper rings and top the dish. At Christmas, use red pepper rings.
