An incredibly simple & easy recipe for Spicy Garlic Green Beans, inspired by P.F. Chang’s restaurant.
Prep Time:3 mins
Cook Time:10 mins
Total Time:13 minutes
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
8 oz green beans, trimmed
1/4 cup water
2 tsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp rice vinegar
1-2 Tbsp hot sauce, to taste
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 tsp cornstarch
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the green beans and cook, stirring ever minute or so, until they get little blackened spots all over, about 8 minutes.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a measuring cup. If you like it HOT, add 2 Tbsp or more hot sauce. If you like it a bit more mild, just add 1 Tbsp.
When the green beans are almost done, carefully pour the sauce into the pan. It’ll sizzle viciously and make lots of angry noises. Just stand back and let it do it’s thing for a bit. Then stir and stir until the beans are totally covered in the sauce. Remove from the heat and serve right away!
