Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh green beans washed and ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Fill a large container or pot with water. Attach the sous vide precision cooker and set the temperature to 186ºF/86ºC.
  • Wash the green beans and trim the ends.
  • Add them into a zip-lock bag, spread out into one single layer.
  • Seal the bag using the “water displacement” technique: seal all but one corner of the bag and slowly place it in the water bath. Make sure everything below the zip-line is covered by water. Then seal the rest of the bag. (Use a vacuum sealer if you have one.)
  • Clip a heavy spoon to the edge of the bag to weigh the bag down. Or use a heavy kitchen item to keep the green beans completely submerged in the water. (Make sure the seams are above the water).
  • Cook for 30 minutes if you prefer a crispy texture and bright green color. (Cook for 45 minutes for a tender and soft texture.)
  • When the timer goes off, take the bag out and remove the green beans from the bag.
  • Add oil to the skillet on medium heat. Once hot, add sliced garlic. Stir fry for a few minutes until golden brown.
  • Add green beans, and season with salt and pepper. Stir fry for about 30 seconds. Serve warm and enjoy!

Notes

  • Store cooked green beans in an airtight container and they can last up to 3-5 days in the refrigerator.
