Sweet and Spicy Glazed Green Beans

A made easy dish with an Asian and Thai flavor.



  1. In a wok or medium skillet heat sesame oil. When at a sizzle, add minced garlic and onion, stirring occasionally until opaque.
  2. Add fresh green beans, salt, and red pepper. (If using frozen green beans, make sure there is no frost on them before putting them in the skillet).
  3. Let cook for 3-4 minutes until tender.
  4. Add brown sugar and continue to mix all ingredients, letting the mixture cook for another 1-2 minutes to let the brown sugar caramelize with the chopped onion and garlic.
  5. Remove from heat and serve while still hot.
  6. Note: you can add more or less of all ingredients to suit your taste.
