I almost always cook my green beans this way (if I have a few extra minutes)--so delicious!
Oriental Green Beans
Adrienne Stowell, a friend from my ward
1 1/2 lbs. fresh green beans, trimmed (I buy a big bag at Costco, pre-trimmed)
3 Tbs. soy sauce
1 Tbs. oriental sesame oil (if you don't have this, sub olive oil, but it's better with sesame)
1 tsp. sugar
6 garlic cloves, minced (I also buy a big jar of minced garlic at Costco, refrigerated)
Steam green beans for 3-4 minutes. Combine soy sauce, oil, and sugar in small bowl. Spray wok or 10" skillet with cooking spray, or small amount of oil. Add garlic, cook for one minute. Add green beans, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Add soy sauce mixture, continue to stir and cook a few more minutes until beans are brown and yummy (but not soggy).
