Sweet and Spicy Green Beans

This was definitely more spicy than sweet- but still all together fantastic. I wanted to pair some green beans with my Asian-style chicken, and this definitely foot the bill. It was spicy with a little bit of sweet, and we loved the soy-garlic-honey mixture. We both gobbled it up! If you’re worried about the spice level, I would halve the amount of garlic chili sauce.

Sweet and Spicy Green Beans
3/4 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp garlic chili sauce
1 tsp honey
2 tsp canola oil
Sesame seeds

1. In a glass, microwave-safe bowl, add your trimmed green beans and a few Tbsp of water. Cover with plastic wrap, and place in the microwave for 5 minutes.
2. In a separate small bowl, mix the soy sauce, garlic, garlic chili sauce, and honey.
3. Heat the canola oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the green beans, and fry for 3 to 5 minutes.
4. Pour in the soy sauce mixture. Continue cooking and stirring 2 minutes, or until the liquid is nearly evaporated. Serve immediately.
