Spicy Green Beans

Last night we had bison strip steaks again - I've already posted the recipe for that. I did, however, make up a new sauteed green bean recipe - they were fabulous.

Bison Strip Steak, Spicy Green Beans, and Garlic Parmesean Mashed Potatoes.

Spicy Green Beans
Icleaned and cut the ends off of my green beans, peeled a few cloves of garlic, and cut up a little red bellpepper and cilantro.

I put in a little EVOO in a pan and sauteed pressed garlic for about 20 seconds then threw in the bell pepper and green beans - then i poured in about 1/2 cup of chardonnay, about 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro, a teaspoon of chili paste and salt and pepper and covered until the wine reduced to almost nothing.
In hind sight - i should have blanched the green beans first - they were a bit too raw for my taste.
