  • 1 pound green beans, washed and remove ends
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 medium red chile, like jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce


Heat a large wok over high heat or large frying pan over medium high heat. Add the peanut oil, then add the shallots, garlic, ginger and chile. Stir the mixture around so it fries in the oil and gets fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add the green beans and toss a couple of times to coat everything evenly. Saute for a couple of minutes so the beans get a little caramelization. Add the soy sauce and cook for 1 to 2 more minutes; the beans should still be nice and crisp. Transfer to a large platter and garnish with drained scallion curls.
