    KunmingCook's Note:

    The name of this dish means "two plots of land", and evokes the image of a field of corn and a field of soybeans growing side by side. Growing up in Iowa, this was the reality of the landscape around me, but it wasn't until I moved to China that I encountered this simple vegetable dish that brings the two together. This is standard fare in the parts of China where I've lived. To see a couple of variations on this dish, and get a snapshot of the kind of kitchen where it's produced daily, read and look here:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/4 cup peanut oil
    • 1/2 lb fresh edamame or 1/2 lb frozen edamame
    • 1/2 lb fresh kernel corn or 1/2 lb frozen corn kernels
    • 1/2-1 red bell pepper, 1/4 to 3/8-inch dice (if you first cut strips, and then slice across the strips diagonally, you get pretty little red diam)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon ground sichuan pepper (optional)
    • 1/2 cup chicken broth (optional)


    1. 1
      If using fresh corn and edamame, parboil for a couple of minutes. Drain water.
    2. 2
      If using frozen, and cooking in a western kitchen, I recommend thawing the corn and edamame before stir-frying. Outside of China, I don't find burners with enough heat to stir-fry something that's frozen. (Even in Chinese homes, where the gas flame typically wraps half-way up the side of the wok, people say they can't get good results like the restaurants do because their burners aren't hot enough. If there's no danger of setting your sleeve on fire or singeing the hair on the back of your hand, stir-fry conditions are less than ideal.).
    3. 3
      Wash and dice bell pepper.
    4. 4
      Heat wok over highest heat until smoking.
    5. 5
      Add oil and swirl in pan to coat pan and heat oil.
    6. 6
      Throw in bell pepper and stir fry briefly.
    7. 7
      Add corn and edamame. Stir to coat with oil.
    8. 8
      Add salt and pepper and stir.
    9. 9
      Add chicken broth, if using, pouring along the side of the wok, so that it heats as it goes inches.
    10. 10
      Stir-fry until vegetables are heated through.
    11. 11
      Serve as part of a Chinese meal with rice, soup, and other dishes.

      This is an excellent side dish that's easy to prepare and tastes great! I recruited my 5 year old DD and her BFF to shell the edamame for me while I diced the red pepper. I used frozen and thawed corn. Both girls really enjoyed this recipe. Thanks for posting it, KunmingCook! Made & enjoyed for the 2012 Chinese/Vietnamese New Year tag game.
