- 1/2 pound Green Beans
- 1 medium Yellow Pepper
- 2 teaspoons chopped Fresh Marjoram
- 1 tablespoon Vegetable Oil
- 1/4 cup Water
- Instead of Yellow bell Pepper, use Red Pepper
- Instead of Fresh Marjoram, use 1/2 teaspoon Dried Marjoram Leaves
Prepare the Green Beans and Pepper
Cut off ends of green beans, discard, and cut them crosswise in half. Cut the yellow bell pepper lengthwise in half into 1/2-inch pieces, and pull out the seeds and membrane.
Boil the green beans
Heat the water and beans to boiling in the skillet. When boiling, reduce the heat just enough so the water bubbles gently. Cover and cook about 5 minutes or until beans are crisp-tender when pierced with a fork. Larger, more mature beans will need to cook longer than young, or smaller beans. If necessary, drain off any excess water.
Add the rest along green beans
Add the yellow bell pepper and oil in the skillet. Increase heat to medium-high, and stir-fry with a turner or large spoon about 2 minutes, lifting and stirring constantly, until bell pepper is crisp-tender when pierced with a fork. Stir in marjoram.
