Spicy Stir Fried Green Beans with Crispy Shallots

Author Notes: Spicy, crispy, and crunchy - a delicious, easy, and very fresh-tasting combo.Erin McDowell

Serves: 4-6

  • vegetable oil, as needed
  • 2-3 shallots, thinly sliced into rings
  • salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • red pepper flakes, to taste
  1. In a small saute pan, heat about 1 inch of oil over medium heat. When it is very hot, add the shallots and fry, tossing occasionally, until evenly golden, about 10-12 minutes.
  2. Remove the shallots and drain on absorbent paper towels. Season with salt. Let cool to room temperature.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large wok. Add the green beans and stir-fry until they are tender-crisp, about 6-8 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and stir-fry until the garlic is fragrant, 1-2 minutes more. Season with salt and serve with the crispy shallots.
