Part 6 - Green Bean Stir-Fry

Oh my. We have had such cold weather for November, I haven't seen a lot of local green beans - a Thanksgiving mainstay at our house.  If you're a little south of here and haven't had a frost yet, here's a very simple and tasty way to cook them.  It should be the last dish you prepare, right before serving. Everyone loves this:

3-4 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 1/2 pounds green beans, ends trimmed
4 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
salt and pepper to taste

In a large wok or skillet, heat the oil on medium-high. Add green beans and cook, stirring frequently, for two minutes or so.  Add garlic and continue to stir-fry for 4 or 5 minutes till green beans are tender and slightly shriveled. Serve immediately.

Eight servings.
