Garlic Beef

8 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound flank steak, thinly sliced
1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
1 medium bell pepper, cut into thin strips

In a medium bowl, combine the garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, sugar, and black pepper; set aside.
In a large skillet or wok, heat the vegetable oil over high heat.
Add the steak and stir-fry for 5 to 6 minutes, or until no pink remains, stirring frequently.
Add the soy sauce mixture, the green beans, and bell pepper.
Stir-fry for 9 to 10 minutes, or until the green beans are crisp-tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, stirring frequently.
Serve immediately
