【乾煸四季豆】Stir Fry French Bean the Sichuan Style





Last week was crazy busy for me again, had no time to shop for grocery and been surviving on take out and sandwiches from delis!

This weekend I was thinking of making something at home and was still lazy to go to the market. I went and check at my square foot vegetable garden and was delighted to find that the french bean is again fruiting so well. I harvest a bunch last week and didn't expect to harvest as much again this week!

Thanks to the good rain fall and sunny days right after! Nothing like fresh vegetables from your own garden! Right?

500-600 克 四季豆 (French Bean) 
200-300 克 肉末 (我用了火鸡肉末)
20 根 辣椒干 (洗净剪半,怕辣可以把种籽去掉)
1/2 tsp 花椒
1/2 包 碎米芽菜


500-600 gm French Bean/String bean
200-300 gm minced meat (I used minced turkey)
20 dried red chilies (Seeded)
1/2 tsp Sichuan Pepper (花椒)
1/2 Packet of Sichuan pickled Mustard (碎米芽菜)

Soy Sauce to taste

1. 把四季豆洗净去丝,掰成 2-3 寸长。热上 1/2 杯油,倒入四季豆变成表皮起皱。捞出沥干油备用。

2. 锅里留下1大匙油,先把花椒加入中火爆香,取出花椒丢弃。然后加入辣椒干,煸香,取出备用。

3. 把肉末加入锅里炒散,喜欢的话,可以洒点料酒去腥。等肉末炒熟,表面有点焦香的时候,加入碎米芽菜翻匀,加入辣椒干,翻匀。最后加入四季豆翻匀,加点酱油调味。就可以出锅。


1. Clean and remove the stem of french bean, break it into 2-3 inches long. Heat up about 1/2 cup of oil in a cooking pan, stir fry the french beans at medium high heat until the skin of the bean become a little wrinkled. Drained, and set a side.

2. Leave about 1 tbsp of oil in the cooking pan, add the Sichuan pepper, when the fragrant come out, dish out the Sichuan pepper and chuck them away, you do not need the pepper anymore, we really only want to retain the smell and taste of the pepper in the oil.

3. Add the dried chilies and stir for a minute at medium heat, make sure that do not burn it. Remove the Chilies and set aside.

4. In the same pan, stir in minced meat and break the meat as loose as possible. You could add about 1 tbsp of cooking wine to the minced meat for better taste and to remove any smell of raw meat.

5. When the minced meat is cooked and a little brown at the edges, add the pickled Sichuan Mustard (碎米芽菜) stir for about 1 min, add the chilies and french bean, stir well and cook for about 3 minutes, season with soy sauce, dish out to serve.

My favorite French bean dish!
