World’s Easiest Garlicky Green Beans Stir Fry

1 lb. fresh green beans (preferably long thin “French” beans, but any type will work)/ TRY WITH ASPARAGUS, BOK CHOY….other veggies?
2 T peanut oil
2 T chopped garlic
1/2 large yellow onion, cut in half top-to-bottom and then into slivers the same size as the beans (next time I’d probably just use the whole onion)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 T water (plus a bit more if you check and the pan seems dry)
2 T oyster sauce (comes in a bottle near the Asian foods in any major supermarket; look for Gluten-Free Oyster Sauce if needed.)


Trim both ends of green beans. Cut green beans into 2 inch lengths, wash, and spin dry or dry with paper towels.


Heat the wok or a heavy frying pan over high heat for 1-2 minutes, until it’s too hot to hold your hand over it.
Add the oil and heat about 30 seconds more.
Keep on med-high heat and add the garlic and onion slivers and cook for 20-30 seconds, stirring the whole time.


Add beans and salt and cook about 2 minutes, stirring several times.

Then add water, COVER wok, and steam for 5 minutes. Watch heat. I kept mine on high but things almost burnt!!! ***Add more water if you need to. after 4 minutes my beans were very dry and i removed them from pan and added the oyster sauce in the bowl***.

Uncover the pan and add oyster sauce, then cook 1-2 minutes more, stirring so all the beans are uniformly covered with the sauce. Beans should still be slightly crisp when they’re done. Serve hot.
