Green Bean Stir Fry with Black Pepper Jam

This delicious side is a must-have at the holiday hosting table!


  • 1lb. fresh Green Beans, ends trimmed
  • 1 medium sized Shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Well Seasoned Sizzle Oil*
  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 4 tablespoons Chicken Stock
  • 2 tablespoons Black Pepper Jam*
    • *Available from Well Seasoned


  1. In a large, heavy pan with a tight-fitting lid over high heat, heat the oil until the oil is shimmery - add the garlic & shallot. Stir constantly so they don’t burn. When the garlic & shallots are nice and fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add the green beans and season with salt. Continue to toss the green beans, garlic, and shallots constantly. Cook for 2 minutes and then add the Black Pepper Jam & the stock – stir to combine. Put the lid on the pan. Let the beans steam for 5 minutes, checking about halfway through to see if it is too dry. If the pan is dry, add a bit more stock, replace the lid and continue steaming.
  3. After 5 minutes, remove the lid & toss the beans. Continue cooking over high heat for 2 minutes, or until the beans are evenly coated and crisp-tender. Serve hot garnished with sesame seeds, if desired.
