Oriental Green Beans

11/2 lbs. green beans, trimmed
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. oriental sesame oil
1 tsp. granulated sugar
6 garlic cloves, minced

In a large pot of rapidly boiling water, cook green beans until just tender, 4-5 minutes.
While beans are cooking, in small bowl combine soy sauce, oil, and sugar; set aside.
Drain beans; set aside.
Spray wok or 10 inch skillet with nonstick cooking spray; place over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring constantly, until softened, 20-30 seconds. Add green beans; cook, stirring and turning constantly, until well coated, about 2 minutes.
Add soy sauce mixture; continue to stir and turn until most of the liquid is absorbed, 1-2 min.
