Asian Garlic Pepper Green Beans

I had some fresh green beans that I needed to cook up. I found this recipe and it was a keeper! I don't have white pepper, so just used black.

Asian Garlic Pepper Green Beans

6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1 pound green beans washed

2 teaspoons canola oil

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1/8 tsp white pepper

1 tsp ginger

3 dried red chili peppers

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat a large pan or wok over medium heat. Pour in canola oil and add sliced garlic, cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent burning.

Toss in green beans and sesame oil. Stir the beans to coat with oil. Add soy sauce, white pepper, ginger, and dried red chili peppers.

Cook for about 8-10 minutes, until beans are bright green. Stir in toasted sesame seeds and transfer to a serving platter.
