Stir-Fried Green Beans
Garden-fresh green beans are quickly stir-fried with a sweet ginger sauce until tender-crisp in this Asian-inspired recipe.
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
2 scallions (white and green parts) minced
2 tablespoons dry sherry
2 tablespoons Splenda® Granular
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil
1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed, and rinsed
2 tablespoons water
- For Stir-Fry Sauce: Combine ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
- For Stir-Fry: In a large skillet or wok, heat the oil and stir-fry the green beans until they are barely crisp-tender, approximately 2 minutes.
- Add the water and continue stir-frying for another two minutes, until the beans are crisp-tender and water has evaporated.
- Add the sauce and continue stir-frying for five or six more minutes, until the beans are tender but not over cooked. Serve immediately.
