Note: To make the whole batch, you’ll need a large rondeau. If using smaller saute pans, make sure to divide your ingredients into batches.

Heat saute pan to medium high heat. Add oil or butter, shallots and garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute. Add beans and soy sauce and keep searing for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. You want to see small scorch marks on the long beans. Season with salt, pepper and chili flakes to your liking.
