Step 1: Chop ingredients
~2lbs green beans, cleaned and halved
1 large onion, chopped
handful garlic, chopped
handful basil, chopped
Prep all vegetables as shown below.
Step 2: Stir-fry onions and beans
Add the green beans, black pepper, and a pinch of salt. Stir as necessary to prevent sticking.
Step 3: Add seasonings
The balsamic should cook down a bit as the garlic cooks, leaving you with very little liquid.
Step 4: Garnish and serve
*Thai basil can take more cooking than Italian basil; i've used Thai here. If you're using Italian you REALLY want to stir the basil in at the last minute, preferably at the table.
