1 pound green beans
fresh, long green beans, or you can use regular ones
2 tablespoons peanut oil
or other vegetable oil, more as needed
3 red chilis, dried
or to taste, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
6 cloves garlic
or to taste, slightly mashed
½ inch ginger
thinly sliced
½ tablespoon soy sauce, sodium reduced
or to taste
½ teaspoon sugar


Wash the green beans, and use a kitchen towel to pat dry. Trim the ends off and cut into about 2 inches pieces.

Heat oil in a wok or a large nonstick pan over medium low heat, the temperature should be not high, otherwise the beans are easily to be burnt.

Add the green beans, cook and stir frequently until the skin is wrinkled, 5 to 10 minutes, it depends on how much oil you use, the more oil, the quicker, but not too much, not deep fry the beans.

Transfer the cooked beans on a plate.

Leave 1 teaspoon oil in the wok or pan, add garlic, chili and ginger, about 2 minutes. Return the cooked beans to the pan, stir in the soy sauce and sugar.

Cook through, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve warm with rice.
