- 2 Slices Bacon
- 20 Stings Green Beans
- 2 Cloves Garlic
- 1 tsp Soy Sauce
- 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 tbsp Japanese Sake or Dry Sherry
- 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
- 1/8 tsp Salt
- 1/8 tsp Toasted Sesame Seeds
Gather all the ingredients.
Grind garlic with a grinder or garlic press and place into a mixing bowl. Add Soy Sauce, garlic powder, Japanese sake and set aside.
Cut the ends off green beans, cut into bite size piece and set aside.
Cut bacon into 1/4 inch pieces and set aside.
In a large Teflon fry pan, place on medium heat and cook bacon until desired texture is reached. Crispy bacon would be better for this dish, which would take around 7-8 minutes on medium.
Once the bacon is done, transfer bacon to holding plate. Add back 1 tsp of the bacon oil into the large Teflon fry pan, turn heat to high and add green beans. Sprinkle salt & black pepper and continuously stir green beans until done but still crunchy, about 2-3 minutes. Note - if your bacon didn't produce any oil, you can substitute with neutral tasting vegetable oil.
Add sauce mixture and cook for an additional 10-20 seconds. Add bacon back in and sprinkle Toasted Sesame Seeds on top. Transfer to a serving plate.
