Sauteed Green Beans Peruvian Style

1 lb of green beans, cut into 1 inch long pieces
1 lb lean beef or mushrooms, chopped into small pieces
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 small piece of ginger (1/2 inch), finely chopped
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 medium white potatoes, peeled and diced

2 eggs, beaten (optional)
salt and pepper to taste


Heat oil in a pan and when hot add the onion. Cook until it becomes transparent, add the garlic and ginger and mix well. Add the meat or mushrooms, soy sauce and pepper, mix well and cover the pot. Cook for a few minutes. Add the green beans and mix well. Cover again and cook over low heat until the green beans are cooked and have turned color into a darker green. Add eggs and stir until the eggs are cooked. Season to taste.

Separately fry the potatoes in plenty of oil and add to the preparation just before serving or serve them as a side dish. Serve with white rice.
