Instructions
  1. Wash and trim the green beans. Cut into 2" lengths
  2. Peel and chop the garlic
  3. Use a spoon to peel the ginger - I love this kitchen trick. It makes quick work of a piece of ginger. Throw the leftover knob into the freezer for later use.
  4. Slice and chop the ginger
  5. Peel and thinly slice the shallot
  6. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan or wok
  7. Add the drained, cut beans to the pan
  8. Sauté the beans until they begin to brown and shrivel. It will take a good 8 to 10 minutes
  9. Remove the beans from the pan and set aside. Add the chopped ginger, shallots and garlic to the pan and cook until fragrant - about 1 minute
  10. Add the Asian chili paste. I usually hit up my favorite Asian market and buy the inexpensive and delicious Sambal Chile Garlic Sauce. You can also use Sriracha or even red pepper flakes
  11. Stir the sauce for a minute or so to combine the flavors and add the green beans back to the pan
  12. Add the Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce) and sugar and cook for about 5 minutes or until the flavors meld well.
  13. Add the salt and pepper. Taste and adjust the seasonings and heat to your liking.
  14. Serve and enjoy! We love to eat them with grilled chicken, pork or steak.
