1

What You'll Need

  • Measuring spoons
  • Chef knife
  • Cutting board
  • Frying pan
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Mixing Spoon
  • Fork

Directions

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Once it’s hot, add the green beans.
  2. Let them cook undisturbed for about 1 minute.
  3. Mix the garlic, soy sauce, chili flakes, ginger, and lemon juice in a bowl.
  4. The beans should have turned bright green. Add about ¼ cup of water to the pan. Cook another 2 minutes, until the water is mostly gone. Pour the sauce into the pan and toss gently to coat. Cook another 2 minutes, until everything is fragrant and most of the liquid is gone. Poke the beans with a fork: if it goes through easily, they’re done. They should take about 5 minutes.
  5. Taste and add more chili sauce if you want the beans hotter.
