So simple! So good! I get the Mauna Loa Maui Onion & Garlic flavored mac nuts for a boost of flavor or have added thick slices of onion + garlic cloves then remove before cooking the long beans. Cashews also work very well with a sprinkle of fresh dill as a garnish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place rough chop mac nuts in pan with olive oil and butter & turn burner on as low as low can go. Leave it there the longer the better, I usually leave for an hour while making the rest of dinner.
  2. Leave long beans long or cut into smaller bite size pieces. Crank up the heat and add long beans. Do a quick stir fry for 4-5 minutes (or longer if you prefer a more cooked veggie).
  3. Remove to serving dish. Garnish with green end of green onion sliced on the diagonal. Perhaps another sprinkle of chopped mac nuts, too.

I didn't stop to realise that green beans are not the same as Chinese long beans, so I used green beans ... and cashews, as per you suggestion, because I had them ...... I followed your recipe, and man, these are fabulous!!!!! I will be making this again soon, these were really scrumptious and my only regret was in halving the recipe, I could have eaten LOTS of these!!! Love this recipe, made for PAC Fall 2012
