Yes sure, just remember that 1 clove of garlic is equal to 1 teaspoon. Im sure the oyster sauce would give the beans a good flavor. I would add the sauce at the end. Heat the pan to a medium/high heat so the sauce sears when you add it.. It should start to carmelize quicly. then remove from the pan..
