Chinese Style Green Beans & Happy New Year!
This green bean dish can be easily spotted at the Chinese buffet table. In fact, that was how I discovered this cooking method. Below is how I imagine this dish is prepared and I made it for our Thanksgiving dinner. It was very closed to the original except I needed more sauce.
3-4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
Salt to taste
1 tsp. chicken stock granules
1. In a pot of boiling water, add a pinch of salt and a little oil. Blanch the green beans for a little while. Dish out and place in cold water.
2. In a wok, add in a little oil. Stir-fry the garlic until fragrant and golden brown. Add in some water. Season with chicken stock granules and salt. Thicken it with cornstarch water and add in the cooked green beans. Stir-fry until well coated with the sauce, dish out and serve.
TO ALL READERS, HAVE A GREAT AND HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010, MAY YOUR WISHES COME TRUE FOR YOU!!
