Lazyass Cookin': Sauteed Sugarsnap Peas w/ Lap Cheong

It's sugar snap pea season! These beans are so sweet and only need a minute in the frying pan, which means it's perfect for us LASYASSES.

Remember when I wrote about chinese sausages, aka lap cheong a couple weeks back? Let's add those, and a clove of garlic.

Alright, add a teaspoon or so of oil (vegetable, olive, whatever) to the frying pan, and add chopped garlic. Remember to add the garlic while the pan is still cold, or else the garlic burns too quickly.

Once the garlic starts browning, add the peas.

Toss for about a minute. Salt, pepper, add a tiny touch of sesame oil, for an extra sumthin'-sumthin'.
