One of my favorite things about this Stir-Fried Green Bean Recipe is the ability to adapt the spices to the meal I am serving. For instance, some meals call for a little spice so I add red pepper flakes. Other times, maybe some lemon pepper or ginger. However you choose to spice them, these beans add great texture to the meal. I like to serve stir-fried beans with Pork Roast and Sauerkraut because the pork and sauerkraut are sort of soft, and these beans add a nice crunchy texture to the meal. I always keep frozen, organic green beans in the freezer just in case I don’t have time to run to the store. You can use either fresh or frozen in the recipe without sacrificing taste.
