1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the green beans into 1-inch pieces. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then thinly slice lengthwise. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a bowl, whisk together the ketchup, honey (kneading the packet before opening), soy sauce, vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of water. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.
