I'm always looking for another way to prepare green beans! This has a hint of asian flavor because of the peanut butter and sesame oil.

Very flavorful. I cut the salt in half, used ground ginger, and peanut oil. We thought the peanut flavor was unusual, but very good. Served with some ribeye steaks. Made for Zaar Stars.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs fresh green beans
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon gingerroot, peeled and grated (may substitute 1 tsp ground ginger)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 1 large garlic clove, minced (make sure it's large, or substitute 2 small)
- 1 teaspoon peanut oil or 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

- Wash the beans and remove the strings. Cook in a small amount of boiling water 10 to 12 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and set aside.
- Combine 1/2 cup water, creamy peanut butter, ginger, and ground red pepper. Set aside.
- Saute garlic in oil in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until tender. Add reserved peanut butter mixture and salt; stir well. Add the reserved beans; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 4 minutes or until the beans are tender and the mixture is thoroughly heated. Serve immediately.
