CHINESE SAUTEED GREEN BEANS (SALLYE)
If available, use fresh off-the-vine beans.
In heavy skillet turned to medium high heat add olive oil and butter.
Allow butter to melt
Cook, stirring frequently to make sure all sides are browned (about 5-7 minutes)
While still in pan over heat, pour soy sauce and honey mixture over beans (you will have to scrape the honey out of the bowl)
Cook about 5 minutes until soy sauce and honey mixture is carmelized on beans (oil will turn dark brown)
Add salt and pepper to taste at this time
Continue cooking for a minute or so until garlic and onions are tender
Garnish with roasted slivered almonds if desired
