I've had a package of frozen green beans in the freezer for several months and I finally came up with something to use them for. This is a quick side or main dish. Don't be scared of the garlic! My rating: 5 out of 5.
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 yellow onion
1 lb frozen green beans
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp water
3 Tbsp spicy oyster sauce
Slice onion into pieces that are roughly the same size as the green beans.
Place a large saucepan on the stove over high heat. Allow to become very hot before adding anything. Keep heat at high while cooking. This goes fast!
Add oil. Allow to heat for 10 seconds.
Add garlic and onion. Stir vigorously and cook for 30-60 seconds.
Add drained green beans, water, and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, until beans are warmed through, about 3 minutes.
Add oyster sauce. Cook for another 30-60 seconds.
If you want to make this a main dish, simply add 1/2 pound of thinly sliced cooked beef or chicken.
