Heat the oil on high heat, add the green beans. Cook, stirring constantly, until the beans soften and you’re seeing some browned spots, 4-6 minutes (fatter green beans will need to cook the full 6 minutes. Young, skinny beans will need closer to 4.).
Add the garlic, soy sauce, and peppercorns and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Same thing here: fat beans will need 2 minutes, skinny ones might just need 1. Keep a close eye, because they can go from frizzled to straight up burnt pretty quickly. Your beans are done when the skin begins to wrinkle, and all of the beans in the pan are at least slightly browned. The skin will wrinkle more after they’re out of the pan, so don’t wait for that fully-done, frizzled look while they’re in the pan.
Top the beans with the almonds, and serve.
