This is the dish that inspired the whole line of sauces and spices! Girl & the Goat green beans have been one of the top selling items since we opened in 2010.

In a small bowl whisk 1 tablespoon This Little Goat went to Southeast Asia into the mayonnaise. Set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot add blanched green beans and cook until starting to brown, about 2 minutes.
