Wash and drain green beans.  Cut or break off stem ends.

Place a skillet over high heat.  Add beans and water.  Cover the skillet and allow it to steam until water evaporates.

When the pan is dry, move beans to the side of the pan, creating a well in the center.  Add canola oil to the well and stir fry beans for 1-2 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve immediately.
