5 teaspoons peanut oil or canola oil
10 milliliters garlic -- peeled and minced
1 teaspoon minced gingerroot
1 pound green beans -- (2 inch pieces)
1 teaspoon oriental sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon salt -- (optional)

Preparation / Directions:

1. Heat the oil in a wok or skillet. Add the garlic and ginger, and stir-fry the ingredients for 30 seconds. 2. Add the green beans, and stir-fry them over high heat for 2 to 4 minutes. 3. Add the sesame oil and salt (if desired), toss the ingredients to coat them, and serve the beans. Preparation tip: The beans are supposed to be tender-crisp and shriveled or even charred a bit on the outside. If you like more tender beans, cover the pan after adding the sesame oil and salt, and continue cooking the beans for a few minutes over moderately low heat.
