I really like the green beans sautéed with garlic that are on the buffet at Chinese restaurants. Sprout had a super sale on fresh green beans, so I decided to try my hand at making them on my own. Turned out great! They were so good!
2 lbs fresh green beans
1/4 cup oil
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 soy sauce
Trim ends off of green beans. Rinse.
Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Add beans and blanch for 3 minutes. Drain well.
In a large sauté pan, heat oil over medium heat.
Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Do not allow it to brown.
Add green beans and remaining ingredients. Black pepper is to taste. Saute to desired level of tenderness.
