How about another vegetable side dish to go with the steak and potatoes from the past couple of weeks? Here’s Rachel Ray’s recipe that went with them:
3/4 lb. green beans, fresh
2 T. vegetable oil
1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
3 T. tamari aged soy sauce (I used reduced sodium soy sauce)
2 t. sesame oil
1 T. sesame seeds
Cut green beans into 2-inch pieces on an angle. Place in a skillet. Add water, salt to taste and cook beans 5 minutes, then drain beans. Place the skillet back on stove and add vegetable oil. Heat pan over high heat until oil smokes. Add the beans and red peppers and stir-fry 2 minutes. Add the soy and sesame oil and transfer to a serving dish. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
