Asian Style Green Beans

The original recipe calls for pine nuts, but I skipped those for no other reason than I forgot to look for pine nuts at the store.  It was good without them, but feel free to add.

Asian Style Beans from Kayotic Kitchen


String beans, trimmed and cut in half
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
Ginger (thumb sized piece, grated)
1 tbsp sweet soy sauce (or 1 tbsp soy sauce + pinch of brown sugar)
1 tsp chili sauce
1/4 tsp chili powder

1. Parboil the beans in lightly salted water for 13 minutes or so.
2. Heat oil in pan.  Saute the bell pepper and then add the onion.
3. Add ginger and garlic to the pan.
4. When the beans are ready, drain them and rinse with cold water.
5. Add beans, chili powder, soy sauce, and chili sauce to the onion and pepper.
6. Stir until beans are cooked, then serve.
