Great base recipe. I made it with a few tweaks:

Boiled the beans for 4 minutes rather than frying them.

Used ham instead of ground pork.

Added a bit of corn starch to thicken the sauce at the end.

Doubled the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 2 cups of the oil in a wok and add the beans.
  2. Fry for one minute or until soft.
  3. Drain.
  4. In a sauté pan, add the remaining oil and heat.
  5. Add the beans, garlic, minced pork, soy sauce, sherry, sugar and broth.
  6. Add the sesame oil and scallion, swirling to heat through.
  7. Serve.
  8. Our beans are extremely crisp, which makes all the difference.
