FOR PRINTABLE VERSION CLICK HERE: Thai Green Beans
5 cups green beans
2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 onion (chopped; I also added a small hot pepper)
2 Tbs ginger root (peeled and minced)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
3 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs Thai sweet chili sauce (I used a garlic/chili sauce)
1. Steam the green beans for 8-10 minutes or until lightly crunchy.
2. Saute’ the onion, ginger root, and garlic in the sesame oil in a large frying pan.
3. Add the sauces to taste and heat through.
The Verdict: This was a very flavorful way to make green beans. It was a bit on the spicy side so next time I’ll use a little less of the chili sauce. DH approved.
