Green bean and mushroom stir-fry

Because sometimes you just want to eat something covered in soy sauce, you know?

This has the added benefit of being fast, easy, and flavorful. You can use frozen green beans (I did), and a big skillet if you don't have a wok. Serve over rice.

1 bag frozen green beans
1 tub button mushrooms, sliced
1 onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger (optional)
Peanut or sesame oil
Soy sauce
Oyster sauce (if you don't have oyster sauce, you can fake it with fish sauce mixed with a little extra soy sauce)

Get the oil (2 tablespoons or so) piping hot. Add the onion and cook until almost soft. Add the garlic and ginger, then the mushrooms. Cook over medium until the mushrooms start to sweat, then turn the heat up and add the frozen green beans. Once they've thawed, add soy sauce and oyster sauce to taste. Keep stirring until the green beans are cooked through.
