1 1/2 TBSP vegetable oil (or cooking oil of choice)
16 oz. fresh green beans
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp freshly grated ginger (or ginger paste)
2 1/2 tsp garlic chili paste
1 tsp dried red pepper chili flakes
Whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, honey, and corn starch until combined. Set aside.
Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat with the oil. Add green beans and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes.
Add garlic, ginger, chili paste, and red pepper flakes, stirring to coat. Continue to cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Pour in the sauce mixture and stir to coat, continuing to cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until sauce is thicker and green beans are tender. Serve with sesame seeds and/or rice as desired.
