Madagascan Green Beans

Ingredients (Serves 4-6)

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb green bean (haricot verts or other)
  • 1 T + t salt
  • 1/4 C oil
  • 1 large shallot or 1 small onion
  • 1 T grated fresh garlic
  • 1 t grated fresh ginger
  • 1 t curry powder
  • 1 t black pepper
  • 1 T soy sauce
  • 1 minced green onion (optional)

Boil green beans in water with 1 T salt added for approximately 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside. In a frying pan over high heat, fry shallot or onion in oil until translucent, then add garlic and ginger and fry one minute more. Add beef and fry until cooked, breaking it into small pieces. Add curry, pepper and soy sauce and stir. Add cooked green beans and 1t salt; reduce heat to medium-high and fry 5-8 minutes, stirring often, until flavors are well-blended. Ideally the meat will be dark brown and a little crispy in places (well-fried). Add minced green onion if desired, stir, and serve alone as a side dish or over rice as a main dish.
