Beef and Green Beans | A Quick and Easy Weeknight Recipe

How to make healthy beef and green beans stir fry - Gluten free recipe that is so simple, quick, and easy it makes a perfect weeknight meal. Low carb dinner that's great comfort food. Perfect with brown rice.

Green beans are iffy at this time of year, so when we see nice ones, we always buy them to make beef and green beans.

Joe and I have been eating this a lot lately. We both love it, and it is quick and easy to throw together after work.

I personally think this recipe is better than the beef and green beans or chicken and green beans at the local Chinese restaurant. It has a lot more flavor.

  1. This is one of my family’s favorite meals and I make it a lot. I sub tamari for the soy sauce, because we don’t eat wheat. I also use the sauce ingredients (everything but the beef and green beans) in other recipes I want an Asian style flavor too, like the meatballs and broccoli I’m currently making.
