Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound green beans trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, cornstarch, red pepper flakes (if using), and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add the green beans and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, until slightly browned and tender-crisp.
  • Add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry for another 30 seconds, until fragrant.
