  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp oil divided (I use avocado oil)
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 lb green beans
  1. In a small bowl, stir first 4 ingredients, plus 1 tablespoon of the oil.
  2. Roughly chop 5 cloves of garlic (or more, if you like!)
  3. Heat a large frying pan or wok over medium or medium-high heat. While the wok is heating up, wash and trim your green beans.
  4. Once the wok is fairly hot, add a tablespoon or so of oil to the wok and tilt it to coat the bottom. Add the garlic and stir fry quickly, making sure not to burn the garlic, for about 5-10 seconds.
  5. Add the green beans and stir fry them for about two minutes with the garlic and oil. Then add the prepared sauce and stir fry for another 3 minutes or so, or until they are tender-crunchy when you bite into one. Then they're done and ready to eat! Enjoy! :)
