Recipe: Chinese Buffet Green Beans

Chinese Buffet Green Beans

Chinese Buffet Green Beans (I added a bit of the sauce from the General Tso’s)

If you’re cooking up some General Tso’s Garlic Shrimp you might want a vegetable to make it a complete meal. Chinese Buffet Green Beans are quick and easy. Serves 4-6.

Peanut oil
Garlic, 3 cloves or more, sliced thin
Ginger, piece the size of your little finger, peeled and sliced thin or chopped or grated
1 lb frozen green beans, cross cut
Sesame oil, dollop (maybe 1 t)
Hoisin sauce, good sized squirt (maybe ¼ c)

Method: sauté garlic and ginger in a little oil in a saucepan until they become aromatic but not browned. Add beans and sesame oil and toss to mix. Cover and cook over low heat until beans are tender, about 5 minutes. Add hoisin sauce, taste and correct the seasoning. You might feel like adding a bit of soy sauce or red pepper flakes.
