Last winter I enjoyed hunting whitetail and just used up the last of the meat in a sesame green bean dinner. After a hard day’s work, we were tired and hungry and didn’t want to spend a lot of time cooking dinner. I had some fresh green beans that needed to be used up so I pulled out the small venison roast and made a quick delicious meal in no time at all.
You’ll only need one pan and a small bowl, so clean-up is a snap too.
Sesame Venison Green Bean Dinner
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 cloves garlic peeled and minced
- 1 pound venison roast (or other red meat) trimmed and sliced into strips
- 1 pound green beans washed and trimmed
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 teaspoon granulated white sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
- Add the sesame oil to a cast iron wok and heat on medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook it until it becomes golden. Add the meat to the pan and sear it until it’s browned on all sides. Next, add the green beans. Stir and fry them for 5-8 minutes or until they become flaccid. In a separate bowl, mix the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar and water. After you’ve mixed the liquids thoroughly add them to the pan with the meat and green beans. Cook the mixture for an additional two to three minutes or until most of the liquid is cooked off. Sprinkle the mixture with sesame seeds and serve as a single plate meal.
