Spicy Stir-Fried Green Beans

Spicy Green BeansPrep Time: 13 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Grade: A

Make Again: Yes

Recipe Source: Cook's Illustrated (January 1999)

This is another favorite recipe. I almost always stir in some rice right into the green beans, right after adding the liquids, and make it into a light fried rice type recipe. I use only 1 tablespoon of oil for this recipe and it still works great. I usually make this a vegetarian entree and only get 2 servings from this. I should try adding a little scrambled egg and nuts to make it even more filling.

This last time I made this, I didn't have scallions, so I used a thinly sliced shallot, which worked well and was maybe even more delicious.
