This Sesame-Ginger Beef is simply the best! A big thanks to my friend, Adie, for sharing this recipe with me. I am so glad that I gave it a try because I never would have tasted perfection! Serve this with rice, and you have a meal to remember! Feel free to add more ingredients if you like. I like to add chili sometimes for a spicy version. Try it and thank me later! Have a wonderful day, everyone. Enjoy!
1 teaspoon plus 1 tbsp. canola oil, divided
2 green onions, chopped

Place a large skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium-high.
Add 1 tsp oil and allow it to become hot.

Add 2 tbsp of water, then cover the skillet with a lid. Move the green beans onto a clean plate.
In the same skillet, add the rest of the oil and allow it to become hot.
Add the beef, then cook for about 3 minutes.
Add the ginger, sugar, garlic, vinegar, and soy sauce. Stir until well combined.
Put the beans back into the skillet, then toss until well mixed.
