This is one of those recipes. If you don't care for green beans use broccoli or baby bok choy, do not dry fry. Add about 1/4 cup water for the "dry fry" part.

How to Make Szechuan Green Beans

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash, trim and cut green beans.
  2. In a small mixing bowl whisk together the Tamari, rice wine vinegar, sugar, pepper flakes, and white pepper.
  3. Mince ginger root and garlic, set aside.
  4. In a large, DRY skillet cook beans over medium to medium high heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. You want your beans to begin to blister but not burn. Turn down the heat if needed.
  5. Add the oils, minced ginger and garlic, stirring constantly for 3 minutes.
  6. Add the soy sauce mixture, let it come to a boil and cook about 2 minutes more, until the sauce thickens and coats the beans and beans are tender-crisp.
  7. Serve hot.
