We’re entering the peak season for fresh green beans and I couldn’t be more excited! Perfect for all biotypes, my paleo beef and string bean stir-fry couldn’t be simpler. It’s perfect for either a weeknight dinner or a dinner party.
Serve with a starch of your choice. Yukon gold or red potatoes pair well with this dish.
