  • 12 oz green beans
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp chicken bouillon
  • 1 tbsp oyster (flavored) sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp vegetable oil


  • Prepare green beans by washing them and then pat drying them. Optional: remove stems.
  • Heat large wok under high meat. Once wok is heated, add vegetable oil (see note 1).
  • Add green beans. Stir green beans continuously to pan fry for 5-8 minutes, or until green beans are cooked (turn darker green, still crunchy).
  • Add minced garlic, oyster sauce, chicken bouillon. Stir to combine. Remove promptly from heat.
  • Serve and enjoy!


Note 1: add more vegetable oil if needed to prevent items from sticking, especially if you are not using a non-stick skillet.
