Stir Fried Chinese Green Beans

I remember going to Mainland China to enjoy some authentic chinese food
which I totally freak out on.

When I first tried them at the buffet I knew I had to cook these at home. These lovely fresh looking beans are first steamed & then thrown into the pan along with some delicious flavors. They make a great dish to go with any Chinese dinner, and the best part is... it can be prepared just in a few minutes.

Everytime I indulge in these stir fried green beans which is simply fingerlicking!!! Now I can cook them at home.

The spices are quickly stir fried with the long beans to bring out their flavors so the result is a fiery tasty yummy preparation to awaken your senses.

Let's collect:
  • Green Beans (washed & ends trimmed) - half a kilo
  • Whole red chillies - Handful
  • Soy Sauce - 1 tablespoon
  • Brown Sugar - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Sesame Seeds (White) - 1.5 teaspoon
  • Vegetable oil - 1.5 teaspoon
  • Salt  - as per taste


  1. Place the green beans over the steamer, cover & allow to steam for 5 mts. Take it off to cool it. You could pass it through cold water & drain again
  2. Now take a wok & add the oil. Let it heat to almost smoking point & then add the red chillies & soon add the green beans. Make sure the red chillies dont burn. You need to be quick here.
  3. Stir fry vigorously to avoid burning.
  4. Now add the soy sauce & brown sugar to this along with the required amount of salt.
  5. Continue to stir fry.
  6. At the end add the sesame seeds & toss them together.
  7. Shift them into your serving bowl & get ready to serve this exotic Chinese dish & enjoy the compliments coming your way!
  • You can avoid using the red paprikas/chillies yet enjoy the flavors
  • French beans is what I used
  • Some add a dash of vinegar too for a tang
  • Your wish to use any oil of your taste for the tossing
