I did prefer a tenderer texture, so I steamed green beans for a few minutes, then cooked in the pan with all the spices. Still had great flavour and tender-crisp texture.

Ingredients

5 teaspoons peanut oil
1 clove garlic
peeled and minced
1 teaspoon ginger root
minced
*
1 pound green beans
2 inch pieces
1 teaspoon sesame oil
½ teaspoon salt

Directions

Heat the oil in a wok or skillet.

Add the garlic and ginger, and stir-fry the ingredients for 30 seconds.

Add the green beans, and stir-fry them over high heat for 2 to 4 minutes.

Add the sesame oil and salt (if desired), toss the ingredients to coat them, and serve the beans.

Preparation tip: The beans are supposed to be tender-crisp and shriveled or even charred a bit on the outside.

If you like tenderer beans, cover the pan after adding the sesame oil and salt, and continue cooking the beans for a few minutes over moderately low heat.
