Stir Fry Green Beans

September 23, 2010
Stir Fry Green Beans

1 lb fresh string beans
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves pressed garlic
1/4 - 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

Heat oil in wok, or large non-stick skillet, on medium high heat. Cut stem ends off green beans, rinse and pat dry. Toss into heated wok/skillet, add remaining ingredients, stir fry until crisp tender. Check for doneness with fork.

These are fabulous - and spicy, so cut back on the pepper flakes if you don't like the heat!
