Asian Style Blistered Green Beans

These are a staple for us any time we go to Chinese restaurants or when we are trying to get through a bulk bag of green beans. The trick is to microwave your green beans for 5 minutes prior to cooking so your green beans still blister but minced garlic doesn’t burn.
