  • 2-1/2 cups fresh green beans (2-inch pieces)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Remove from skillet; season with salt and pepper, as desired.  Keep warm.

  • 3. Add to same skillet, half of beef; stir-fry 1 to 3 minutes or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink. Remove from skillet. Repeat with remaining beef.
