Chinese Green Beans and Ground Turkey Stir-Fry

This dinner is quick, flavorful, and healthy! I bet it will be a new staple in your house. Those that know me, know how much I love Chinese food. This is a great healthier alternative to Chinese take-out!

To make it even better, it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare, making it a great recipe for those busy days!

If you can find Chinese long beans in your supermarket, those make this recipe taste even more authentic. If not, regular American green beans are perfect too. Just make they are fresh (not canned!) for a great result. If you don’t have fresh available, try frozen instead.


  • 1 cup medium grain rice uncooked
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1 small bunch green onions sliced thin
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or crushed
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon crushed ginger
  • 1 pound washed and trimmed green beans
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar


Start rice in lightly salted water.

When rice is about 15 minutes from done, heat large skillet over high heat. Add sesame oil, and sauté green onions and garlic for about 2 minutes. Stir in ground turkey and sauté 3-5 minutes, until meat is mostly cooked. Crumble meat as much as possible.

Stir in chili garlic sauce, hoisin sauce and ginger. Add green beans and soy sauce, and stir to coat. Continue cooking over high heat for 7-9 minutes longer, stirring frequently, until beans are slightly tender.

Stir in rice vinegar, and cook one minute longer. Server cover cooked rice.


Love & Sparkle,
