Sichuan green beans

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient

1 tablespoon Peanut oil
1 teaspoon Ginger, minced
1 teaspoon Soy sauce
½ teaspoon Chili oil
1 teaspoon Honey
1 \N Scallion, white and green parts, chopped

1. Cut the stem ends off the beans and discard. Steam the beans for 3-4 minutes. Submerge in ice water to stop the cooking; drain.

2. In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, chili oil, honey, sherry, and sesame oil; set aside.

4. Stir the seasoning sauce. Add it all at once to the beans and stir them constantly until the sauce is absorbed, about 30 seconds. Serve hot or warm.
