    Stir Fry Green Bean Recipe



      • If using bacon, in a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until golden and fat is mostly rendered, 5 minutes. Transfer bacon to a bowl and reserve 2 tablespoons bacon fat in pan.
      • Add in green beans, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes (if using) and frequently stir until beans are beginning to blister, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in black and white pepper.
      • Stir in vinegar, hoisin, and oyster sauce until evenly combined, then return bacon (if using) to skillet and add green onions. Cook, frequently stirring, until green onions soften. Remove pan from heat and stir in sesame oil.
      • Garnish with sesame seeds before serving.
