Sweet Green Beans with Green Onion and Garlic


This is a two step cooking process

First You will need:
Fresh Cut Green Beans about 2 to 2 1/2 lbs. (washed and ends trimmed).  
Water with tsp.salt (enough water to cover beans in pot) 

Place beans in pot of salted boiling water and boil about 8 minutes until slightly softened.

Drain in colander

Now you will need:

  • 1  Tbsp. Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Green Onion Chopped
  • 1 Garlic Clove Chopped
  • 1 tsp. Oyster Sauce
  • 1 tsp. Soy Sauce
  • 4 Tbsp. Water 
  • 1 Tbsp. Sugar 


Place oil in a skillet on medium high for about 1 minute, add green onions and garlic clove, cook on med-high heat about 1-2 minutes stirring frequently. Add green beans and stir, then add oyster sauce, soy sauce, water and sugar cook covered on med-high heat about 10 minutes or until desired tenderness, (I like my beans tender with a slight crispness). Be sure to stir frequently. Add salt to taste.  
Enjoy!

Tip: More or less sugar, garlic or green onion can be adjusted to suit your taste. 

Serving Size: Serves about 4-5 people
