Stir-fried green beans
The simplest way to prepare Asian-style green beans is to put them in a steamer and steam them for at most 10 minutes. But they can also be stir-fried with garlic until their texture softens if the cook desires to have more flavor from this vegetable.
In general, it takes 8-15 minutes for most vegetables to cook, depending on how vigorously they are being cooked. Stir-frying requires you to maintain a high but consistent temperature so that the vegetables will not burn or stick together before becoming soft. This must be done by turning the stove up higher than required during preparation. Once all ingredients have been added to the wok or pan. just let it sit over medium heat. If you manage your stove correctly, you will not need to stir fry for any longer than 10 minutes.
Asian-style green beans are an excellent side dish for all occasions. They can be served as a healthy, low carb and vegan dish or they can accompany dishes like beef bulgogi (Korean BBQ).
