Healthy French Bean Chinese Stirfry


Dear friends, 😀

Here is another simple Chinese stirfry recipe for French Beans. All you need are just –

* 400gm French Beans, cut into 1 to 1 1/2-inch lengths

* 3 cloves garlic, chopped

* 2 tbsps oyster sauce

* 1/2 tsp sugar

* 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt

* 1/4 cup water

* 2 tbsps cooking oil

1) Just heat up some oil in a wok over high heat until it smokes a little bit. Put in the garlic and stir continously until golden.

2) Put in the French Beans and hear the wonderful sizzle, while you continue to stir them vigorously in the wok. 😆

3) Add in the water, give beans another good stir and cover the wok to let the vegetables steam for 2 minutes.

4) Remove the wok cover, put in the rest of the ingredients and stir the beans for another minute or two.

5) Remove from heat and serve this dish hot. Enjoy the slightly smoky and garlicky flavour of the beans as well as their sweet crunchiness! 😉

Serve this with other meat dishes in either a Chinese meal with hot steamed rice, or as a side dish for your Western meals. Bon Appetit! 😀

    Dearest choesf! 🙂

    I love vegetables so much…I’ve tried this new recipe yesterday and it’s great. We eat French beans over here in salads with raw pepper,tomato, garlic and herbs or with all ingredients steamed and a tbspn of sour cream .

    I’m glad I’ve learned something new. Thanks.

    Hugs, te pup, rose

    Dearest Rose, LD

    I am so glad that you like this vegetable stirfry – it is very easy and yet tasty and nutritious, ey? You can also cook celery, broccoli, cauliflower or an assorted medley of vegetables this way, too!

    Actually, eating the vegetables raw is the best in terms of nutrition.. 😆

    Have a nice week ahead!

    Love and hugs,

    Hi, I was looking for instructions on how to stir-fry french beans and I knew your website wouldn’t disappoint. 🙂 Even though your post is more for a ‘Western’ audience, it’s great for beginner Chinese cooks like me. Thanks for posting this, no recipe is too simple to post, ok! 🙂

      Good morning, dear KY 😀

      My blog is also meant as a legacy and guide for my daughters (now ages 23 and 18) who don’t know how to cook, and my recipes here are what I usually cook. I’m glad you found this simple recipe helpful. I have some friends from the West and so, my recipes are also adapted for their easy understanding. 😉

      Happy Cooking!

      With best wishes,

      choesf 😀
