Green beans. The staple of many dinner plates when you know you NEED to have a green vegetable.
I served these alongside turkey patties that were glazed with some of the remaining sauce used for these green beans. The recipe for those are found here http://fleurdelolly.blogspot.com/2015/05/asian-turkey-patties-with-soy-ginger.html
1 lb. fresh green beans
1 T. cornstarch
1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon sodium soy sauce divided
2 t. vegetable oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 ½ t. minced ginger
3 T. honey
2. T dry sherry
1-2 t. Sriracha sauce or 1/2 t. dried red pepper flakes
2 t. toasted sesame oil
Steam green beans until crisp tender and set aside. In small bowl whisk together corn starch and 1 T. soy sauce set aside.
In large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat; add garlic and ginger and saute for 1 minute. Add to skillet, 1/3 cup soy sauce, honey, sherry, Sriracha, and sesame oil; whisk to combine. Simmer over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Whisk in cornstarch/soy sauce mixture; stir and heat until thickened. It will thicken quickly!
Remove about half the sauce to a small bowl. This is what you will use to glaze the turkey patties in the recipe found HERE.
Add green beans to skillet and toss until evenly coated with sauce. Transfer to platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.
