Best Green Beans

For many people there is a separation between vegetables and meat. Yet in many cultures meat is used to flavour vegetables. Here is a simple green bean stir fry that uses a little bit of beef mince to flavour the beans. This healthy recipe is a great way to encourage your kids to eat their greens.



A quick note. I like using beef mince, but I have also substituted other meats as well, including bacon, ham and pork mince. While my favourite is with beef, the others are also delicious.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 2 as a main or more as a side dish

Ingredients
250 g green beans, topped, tailed and chopped
1 small red capsicum, chopped
50 g beef mince
1 clove garlic minced
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
1 tablespoon water



Please note, the actual recipe that I use is more along the lines of whatever green beans I have at home, using enough red capsicum to make the dish colourful without ending up with more capsicum than beans.

Method
Fry the mince in a little oil until lightly brown.
Add the chopped capsicum to the pan and cook for a few minutes.
Then add the chopped green beans and stir fry on a high heat.
When the beans start to brown, add the garlic and turn down the heat (I add the garlic at the last moment to stop it becoming burnt.)

Finally add the soy sauce. You might also need to add a little water, depending on how strong the soy sauce is. You want enough liquid left to flavour the rice you might serve this dish on.
Serve with rice as a main. As a side dish it goes well with nearly anything, including Asian meals or western meals.
