Soy Sauce String Beans

Growing up, we always thought we didn’t like string beans. Looking back, that sounds ridiculous. What’s not to like? But the only string bean we’d ever eaten were once frozen and burnt to a crisp. Our sister Rayna reintroduced us to string beans years later with this recipe.

So this is up there with one of the easiest things you’ll ever make. You only need four ingredients. Four! The hardest part is cutting off the edges of the string beans, but you can pay extra to buy those pre-cut at the supermarket these days.



Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of string beans
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce

Directions:

  1. Heat up the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until it is fragrant; don’t burn it!
  2. Add the string beans and toss in the oil. Pour the soy sauce over the string beans and cover.
  3. Cook for about 15 minutes, mixing occasionally to ensure even cooking.
