These garlic green beans by Lisa Lin are so simple but incredibly delicious. The flavors of the garlic, red pepper flakes, and sesame seeds blend well with the crunchy green beans. These are often served at Chinese restaurants, but I can say this homemade recipe is so much better. Try it at home – I bet you’ll be surprised how good this dish is.



  • 1 pound of green beans
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • neutral-flavored oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic salt
  • toasted sesame seeds
  • red pepper flakes

Note: You want tender and young green beans. If you can, pick ones that are slender. Avoid those that have bulging seeds inside because they tend to be tough.

Step 1:

Prepare the green beans. Snap off the end then snap it in half. Next, rinse the beans thoroughly. Spread out the green beans over a large baking sheet or a couple of plates lined with cloth or paper towel. You want to make sure the green beans dry thoroughly.

Step 2:

Pour about 1/2 to 1-inch oil into a wok over medium-high heat. To see if the oil is hot enough, stick bamboo chopsticks into the bottom of the wok. If you see tiny bubbles forming rapidly, the oil is ready. You can also use this with bamboo utensils.

Step 3:

Cooking in batches, carefully add green beans to the wok. Fry the beans for about 1 to 2 minutes, or until their skin starts to wrinkle. Remove the green beans and strain to remove excess oil. Place on a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat with the remaining green beans. Once done, pour all the oil into a bowl or jar.

Step 4:

Add the minced garlic to the same wok and cook for about 30 seconds. Turn off the heat and add the green beans back to the wok. Toss them together.

Step 5:

Season with 1/4 teaspoon of garlic salt, toasted sesame seeds, and red pepper flakes. Toss to combine.
