Wash and trim off stem end of beans, leaving the tail intact. Cut beans on the diagonal into 2-3 inch pieces and set aside. In bowl combine soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, chili and pepper. Heat water in stir fry pan until steaming, add the beans and quickly cover them. Cook exactly 3 minutes. Remove the lid and let any remaining water evaporate away, adding the oil, garlic and ginger. Stir and cook about 2 minutes. Add the reserved soy mixture and cook and stir several minutes. Serve.
