Garlic Green Beans

Looking for a flavorful, inexpensive, easy peasy dish to serve with your next Chinese inspired meal? 
Look no further!
These green beans only take about 20 minutes from start to finish and taste soooooo good. 
They also make a great addition to a Chinese food dinner...

This recipe is also very easy to double, or even triple, if you have company or need something unusual to bring to a potluck. Increasing the recipe would mean an increase in cooking time, but not too much - maybe another 10 minutes or so. 

Garlic Green Beans

1 Tbsp sesame oil
4 shallots, diced
6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 lbs green beans, ends trimmed
1/4 cup rice wine
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp ginger, minced (or ginger paste)

toasted sesame seeds

Heat oil over medium heat in a large frying pan. Cook shallots and garlic for 3 minutes, stirring often.

 Add in green beans and cook for about 8 - 10 minutes, stirring often, until beans start to soften.

Make sure your rice wine is measured and ready to pour, and your oyster sauce, soy sauce, and ginger are mixed and ready to go.

Deglaze the frying pan with the rice wine. 
Add in the sauce/ginger mixture. Stir well into the beans.
Continue to cook until beans are as done as you would like - mine only took another 5 minutes. 
Remove from pan and serve hot. If desired, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. 

See what I mean about easy peasy?
Hardly any prep and only a few dishes. What's not to love?
