The key to this dish is developing a nice char on the green beans. To do so, heat the oil in your skillet until it almost smokes before adding the beans. Let them sear, stirring every 20 to 30 seconds, and they'll take on color. Feel free to sub thinly sliced strips of red bell pepper instead of hot chiles.

How to Make It

Step 1

Brown ground pork and next 3 ingredients in a large stainless steel skillet over medium-high heat, stirring often, 7 to 8 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Wipe skillet clean.

Step 2

Cook green beans in hot oil in skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes or until just tender and slightly charred.

Step 3

Stir together teriyaki sauce and next 2 ingredients.

Step 4

Stir pork mixture into green beans. Stir in teriyaki mixture, tossing to coat. Serve immediately over rice or noodles.

Step 5

Note: We tested with Kikkoman Triple Ginger Takumi Collection Teriyaki Sauce.

My family loves this stir fry.  It is a go to on a busy night or when my husband is on call.

Our new favorite stir-fry! We searched everywhere for the Kikkoman Triple Ginger sauce without success. Our standard teriyaki sauce did not disappoint. The only things I will change next time is opting to leave out the added salt and use a low sodium teriyaki sauce.

Great recipe! I don't eat pork, so I substituted the ground pork with ground turkey. The flavors are specially tantalizing.

This was a wonderful recipe! Highly recommended! Made it with a homemade teriyaki sauce to lower the sugar. So good!

This is so delicious! We love our veggies, so I used more green beans, and maybe a bit more lime zest and juice, as the teriyaki sauce was very sweet. Also, added some sliced green onions after everything was heated. Don't be discouraged if you can't find exactly the brand of teriyaki sauce specified--it will still be good. A good quick Sunday night supper--we loved it!

Quick, delicious, fresh and easy, what's not to love? I added more garlic and a splash of fish sauce. Will definitely make again.

Very Good!

Made this tonight, but I was missing a few ingredients, so I made some substitutions.  I didn't have teriyaki sauce, so I used 1/4 cup of oyster sauce and added about 1/2 tsp of sugar. I had a lot more haricots verts than the recipe called for, so I doubled the lemon juice and zest (I didn't have any lime). I added some basil and a whole sliced jalapeno. I doubled the garlic, like I do with every recipe that calls for it.  Even with all the substitutions, the dish came out delicious.  I would definitely make it again.
