beans can be used just like regular green beans - but
they're long, a foot and a half long, which makes
them cool. See that photo? That's a regular 12"
diameter skillet, and I'd cut the beans in half.
What you need:
- 1.5 tbsp of vegetable oil
- 1 medium garlic cloves (or 2 if you like
it good and garlicky)
- 1 pound of long beans
- 1 tbsp of fish sauce
- pepper, if desired
Trim the ends of the beans. Cut them
in 2 inch lengths - or leave 'em longer if you think
that's cool (I do) but be warned that if they're too
long they will try to escape from the pan when you cook
Heat the vegetable oil in high and stir-fry
the garlic until golden, about a minute. Add the
beans, stir well so they get a coating of oil, and fry
them for another 3 minutes. Add the sauce and pepper
and fry another 10 minutes or until the beans are cooked.
