Szechuan String beans Scallions, red pepper flakes, and ginger are used to flavor summer beans.
1-1/2 pounds of cut green beans
3 tablespoons tamari
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon mirin 1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon peanut oil
2 shallots chopped
2 minced cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of freshly grated ginger
3 tablespoons minced onion greens
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
How to prepare:
Lightly cook green beans in a steamer until just tender, about 5 minutes. Rinse with cold water to halt the cooking process, then set aside.
Combine tamari, sesame oil, mirin, and sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
In a wok or big skillet, heat peanut oil over medium-high heat. Stir-fry the shallots, garlic, ginger, scallions, and red pepper flakes for 30 seconds. Add the reserved green beans, followed by the tamari mixture, and stir-fry until aromatic and the green beans are evenly covered. Serve warm.
