Chinese-style sauteed Green Beans

Dish: Side-dishes
Dish Type: Vegetables
Cooking Method: Skillet & Wok
Diet: Vegetarian
Difficulty: 2 / 10
Servings: 1-2
Prep Time: 3 mintues
Cook Time: 15 minutes

  • 1 Tblsp. - honey
  • 1 Tblsp. - olive oil
  • 1 Tblsp. - unsalted butter
  • 1 Tblsp. - low-sodium soy sauce
  • heavy pinch - salt
  • 1 Tblsp. - crushed garlic
  • 1 Tblsp. - water

Break ends off of fresh green beans.  Combine honey, soy sauce and water in a small bowl and set near the stove.   Heat a straight-sided skillet on medium-high.  Put butter and olive oil in the pan.  When butter is melted, add green beans and salt.  Toss to coat (tongs are easiest).  Sautee' the green beans for about 7-8 minutes until they are brown and soft.  Add the garlic and stir constantly for about 30-45 seconds.  I use a rubber spatula.  Add the soy/honey/water mixture.  You will have to use a rubber spatula to get the honey out of the dish.  Stir constantly for about a minute until sauce reduces slightly.  Put in a dish and make sure to scrape all of the delicious garlicy sauce out of the pan with the spatula!  ENJOY!!!  I like to eat these with rice.
