Ginger, Garlic Green Beans

These green beans obviously go best with asian food, but they are so good we make them this way even if we aren't having asian!


1 Tablespoon peanut oil
12 lb green beans
1 Tablespoon (generous) finely chopped ginger
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon soy sauce

Bring a pot of well salted water to a boil and add the green beans until bright green and just tender - about 2 minutes.  Drain and rinse with cold water.  The green beans can be made a few hours ahead and kept in the refrigerator.  Heat the peanut oil in a sauté pan over medium high heat.  When hot add the ginger and garlic and cook until fragrant - about 1 minute.  Add the green beans and soy sauce and stir fry for several minutes, until the green beans are hot.  Serve immediately.

Serves 2
