A nice, simple dish and easy to cook. Anything I cook is simple. I eat to live so I don’t do dishes that involve a lot of work.
Here we go. Stir-fry long beans Vincent’s style.
Boil some water in the wok and put the bundle of long beans in. Boil it for a couple of minutes. After that, let it cool off before removing both ends.
Then cut them into tiny pieces.
Prepare some garlic and dried prawns. These are optional. If you don’t like garlic or dried prawns, you can leave them out. I love both dried prawns and garlic because they add flavour to the dish. Cut the dried prawns and garlic into fine pieces.
We are ready to start frying the beans. Heat up the wok and add some oil. Add in the dried prawns first and give it a stir. Add in the garlic…
Followed by the long beans. Add salt to taste. Stir-fry them for a couple of minutes.
Long beans are quite tough and it takes time to cook. That is the reason why I boil them first. If you are unlucky and you get a batch that is overgrown, they can be leathery to the bite, and can take a long time to cook.
While the beans are frying, prepare the eggs. Break two eggs, add some soya sauce, or salt and beat them.
When you are happy with the bite of the beans, add in the eggs and stir fry them with the beans. You can add a sprinkle of pepper if you like. When the eggs are cooked, the dish is ready.
That is the general process of cooking long beans using this method. Oil and salt are according to your taste. Garlic and dried prawns are optional. If you don’t like them or if they are not available, you can do with out them. You can add another egg if you are a fan of eggs.
Prepare the dish once, fine tune it the second time and by the third time, you will have your perfect plate of stir-fry long beans.
