Spicy Soybeans

     1 lb frozen soybeans in shell

     6 c water

     4 tbsp vegetable oil, divided

     1 chili pepper, seeded

     2-inch piece ginger, cut into pieces

     3 cloves garlic

     3 tbsp shoyu

     1 tbsp oyster sauce

     1/2 tsp sesame oil

Boil water.  Add frozen soybeans and cook for 30 seconds.  Drain and set aside.  In a small food processer, combine chili pepper, ginger, and garlic.  Pulse until chopped very fine.  Heat 2 tbsp oil in a wok until hot.  Add beans and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Shove beans to one side of wok and add remaining 2 tbsp oil.  Add chili pepper mixture. Add shoyu, oyster sauce, and sesame oil.  Cook until liquid is evaporated, tossing frequently to distribute seasoning evenly among beans.
