Hot & Heavenly String Beans


3 tbsp olive oil
1 lb string beans, ends trimmed, cut into halves
1 tsp ground ginger
45 lg cloves garlic, minced very finely
1 tsp salt
13 tbsp hot sauce (to taste)
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts

How to prepare

Heat the oil in a lg frying pan over med heat. Add your string beans and saute until they look very green and their skin looks a bit blistered, about 510 min.. Dust the ground ginger over the string beans, stir, and cover the pan to steam them for another 510 min., or until tender but firm. Add finely minced garlic, salt, and hot sauce, stirring and raise the heat to med-high. Cook briefly, about 2 or 3 min., just until hot sauce is absorbed and garlic is aromatic but no longer seems too pungent. Add toasted pine nuts and remove from heat. Serve over rice or on their own. Be sure to mince the garlic superfine, or else it won’t coat and cling to the beans and it’ll take too long to cook the garlic. And if it seems like you’re using too much garlic you’re using just enough.
