Chinese Green Beans with Ground Turkey
So, in my hunt for a little flare to go with my large amount of ground turkey I found this recipe on pinterest. It's super quick and probably different than your typical weeknight dinners. Supper Yummy too. You can get the original here at WearyChef. You can also check out their really pretty picture there. Mine didn't turn out as pretty. lol.
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 cup diced onion (or green onion)
2 cloves garlic
1 pound ground turkey
2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 tsp ground ginger
1 pound beans (I used frozen)
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp seasoned rice vinegar (I used regular and I'm not sure this is necessary anyway)
1 bag steam-able wild rice
Heat large skillet over high, add sesame oil, and saute onions and garlic for about 2 minutes.
Stir in ground turkey and saute 3-5 minutes, until meat is mostly cooked
Stir in chili sauce, hoisin sauce, and ginger. Add green beans and soy sauce and stir to coat.
Continue cooking on high for 7-9 minutes, stirring frequently, until beans are slightly tender.
Stir in rice vinegar and cook one minute longer.
Serve over rice
This meal went SUPER quick. You need time to brown the meat and get the beans tender and your good to go. I opted for the microwavable steam bagged rice so that I could put that in and forget about it vs having to make rice on the stove which could easily be done. As a note, this was a bit spicy but far within the mild category for level of spicy. Our 18 month old ate the beans without batting an eye so it couldn't have been too bad.
