This is what you need:
1 lb Ground Pork (Ground Turkey works too)
4 cups fresh Haricoverts (regular green beans are great too)
2 cloves Garlic - minced
1 tbsp Olive Oil
4 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
3 tbsp Soy Sauce
1-2 tbsp Garlic Chili Sauce (Siracha works well too)
2 tsp Sugar
2 tsp Cornstarch
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
This is what you do:
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and with 1 tbsp Oil. Add the ground pork, 1/4 tsp each of salt and pepper and 2 tsp Cornstarch. Break up the pork and mix with the seasonings well. When just cooked through, add the minced garlic and the green beans. Mix completely and cook for about 5-7 minutes. While this is cooking, whisk4 tbsp Hoisin sauce, 3 tbsp Soy Sauce, 1-2 tbsp Garlic Chili Sauce, 2 tsp Sugar in a bowl. Pour over the pork and green beans and mix so everything is coated. Continue cooking until the green beans have reached your desired done-ness, about 5-10 minutes. Serve alone, with rice or my Crispy Cauliflower Rice.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15-20 minutes
Total Time: 20-25 minutes
First thing to do is add 1 tbsp Olive Oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the ground pork, 1/4 tsp each of Salt and Pepper and 2 tsp Cornstarch and break up the meat and mix all around.
The cornstarch is important because it thickens up the sauce.
Continue cooking the meat until it is just cooked through. While this happening, get the 2 garlic cloves minced. Once the meat is ready, add the garlic and the green beans to the skillet.
While the green beans are cooking, get the sauce ready. Combine 4 tbsp Hoisin Sauce, 3 tbsp Soy Sauce, 1-2 tbsp Garlic Chili Sauce or Siracha and 2 tsp Sugar and whisk well. Pour the sauce over the green beans and pork and mix around so everything is coated evenly.
This is magic sauce.
This is honestly just as good as something you would eat in a Chinese restaurant and is so easy and much healthier. This is a family favorite in my house and I hope you enjoy as much as we do!
