Our Favorite Green Beans

Simple Clean and Homemade I Our Favorite Green Beans 2

My favorite food for as long as I can remember has been green beans. I was infatuated as a kid. I often would eat only green beans for dinner especially when we had something icky. I love the crispiness and the fresh fast of fresh green beans. I specifically like uncut green beans. When no one is around, I like to eat them with my fingers like french fries.

This recipe is our go to green bean recipe. I make them quickly in the wok. I like to keep them a little on the crispy side, so I cook them until they start to get small blackened spots on them. That is the key. When they start to get black all over, they are too soft for me but still tasty.

We simply season them with garlic, butter, salt, and red pepper flakes. Best. Green Beans. Ever.
