Ground Turkey Stir-Fry with Black Bean-Garlic Sauce
Servings: 4 Prep 5 mins Cook 8 mins Start to Finish 13 mins


  • 2 tablespoons black bean-garlic sauce (I used Lee Kum Kee brand - reduce to 1 tablespoon for a lower-sodium dish)
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 red onion, slivered
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, slivered
  • 1 large handful green beans, stemmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pound ground turkey or beef
  • Steamed rice (such as a mix of brown and jasmine), for serving
  • Sriracha hot sauce and/or fried chili pepper slices, for serving (optional)

Make It

1. In a small bowl, mix together the black bean sauce, rice wine, honey and sesame oil.

2. Heat a large, heavy pan over high heat for 1 minute. Add the vegetable oil, followed by the red onion, red pepper and green beans. Stir-fry the vegetables for 2 minutes. Add the ground turkey to the pan and stir-fry until cooked through and browned in places, 4 to 6 more minutes.

3. Scrape the sauce into the pan and stir-fry until the sauce is absorbed, about 1 minute. Serve over rice, with sriracha or fried chilies to spice it up if desired.
