Instructions

  1. Heat a skillet over med-high heat, when hot add in 1 TBS oil and the green beans.
  2. Allow the green beans to begin to char, stirring them around occasionally. YO want these to remain crisp-tender, so all in all cook for 3 minutes.
  3. Remove green beans from the pan and set aside.
  4. Add the remaining TBS of oil and the onions, saute for 2 minutes. Add in the garlic paste and ginger paste (or minced garlic and ginger) and stir for 30 seconds.
  5. Add in the ground veal using a spatula to break it up and mingle it with the onion mixture.
  6. Cook veal until cooked through.
  7. If any excess liquid accumulates, drain it off.
  8. While meat cooks, combine sauce ingredients and whisk until incorporated (soy sauce, mirin, chili with garlic sauce and sesame oil…which by the way are all found in the Asian section at your grocery store).
  9. Add in sauce and heat through until bubbly.
  10. Remover from heat and garnish with scallions and if you like chopped peanuts. Serve as is or over rice.
