 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/4 tb Cornstarch
  • 5/8 c Beef broth -- cooled
  • 1 7/8 tb Tamari soy sauce
  • 1 1/4 tb Dry sherry
  • 1 1/4 ts Cider vinegar
  • 1 1/4 tb Oil
  • 1 1/4 lb Green beans -- trimmed and
  • Sliced
  • 2 1/2 ts Fresh ginger root -- minced
  • 2 1/2 Cloves garlic -- minced
  • 1/3 ts Red pepper flakes -- or to
  • Taste
  • 1 lb Lean ground beef


In a small bowl, combine all the sauce ingredients. Make sure the
cornstarch is completely dissolved. Set the mixture aside.

In a wok or large skillet, heat the oil for 30 seconds over high heat. Add
the green beans & stir-fry for about 4 minutes; the beans should be
tender-crisp & lightly charred in spots. Remove the green beans from the
pan with a slotted spoon; set aside.

Add the ginger & garlic to the pan and cook for 30 seconds, then add pepper
flakes & ground meat. Crumble the meat with a spatula, breaking up any
large chunks. Stir fry just until the meat is done. Drain off any
accumulated fat.

Stir the reserved sauce once more & add it to the meat. Cook the mixture,
stirring frequently, for a few minutes more until the sauce thickens. Fold
in the reserved green beans. Heat through for 1 minute; serve.

This recipe is based on one in Jane Brody's _Good Food Book_; it has been
adapted and scaled up.
