There are only 10 more days before Christmas. The mall is getting busier each day and I am still  not done with my Christmas shopping. Yesterday was quite a busy day so I was thinking of a quick and easy dish to make. I made this delicious sautéed green beans for dinner last night.

There are many ways to prepare and cook green beans. It can be steamed, grilled, baked or sautéed. My favorite way is to sauté it with ground pork and flavored with oyster sauce. It is such an easy recipe; dinner is ready in less than half an hour :)
