Stir Fried Green Beans
Wonderful served with poultry or lean pork.

Servings: 4

 • 1 tablespoons peanut oil
 • 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
 • Salt
 • 3/4 pound green beans, trimmed
 • 1/4 teaspoon sugar

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, sprinkle with salt to taste, and cook, stirring, until lightly golden, about 30 seconds. Add green beans and turn to coat them with the oil, garlic, and salt. Stir in 1/4 cup water and sugar and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute. Cover the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the green beans are slightly wilted but still crunchy, 2–3 minutes.

Uncover the skillet, increase the heat to high, and cook, stirring often, until the liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes more. Taste for salt and add more if necessary. Serve promptly.
