SAUTEED LONG BEANS WITH GARLIC AND MINCED MEAT
I was planning on posting a funny post but it just could not be. The men in this house are sitting in their corners sucking their thumbs and sulking. Their all time favourite team are out of the finals for World Cup this time. That is serious matter to some. Mourn worthy.
So I'll just whisper to you.....I cooked long beans sauteed in garlic and minced meat. That's all I'm saying. It's good but it looks like it's not good enough to wipe out those long faces and furious eyebrows. As far as my men are concerned FIFA World Cup is so over. Yes. Who cares anymore. Yes. In this house FIFA World Cup officially ends here!
But the giveaway is still officially open a for few more hours. So go here for the GIVEAWAY !
The recipe ~
300 gn long beans
200 gm minced meat
2 pips garlic
1 red chillie
2 T oyster sauce
a few splashes of fish sauce
1 1/2 T cooking oil
some water or stock
Rinse then cut long beans into 1 inch lengths. keep aside. Pound garlic and chillie pepper in a pestle and mortar medium fine.
Heat a wok. Pour in the cooking oil. Saute the garlic and chillie paste until fragrant on medium heat. Drop in the minced meat and stir until the meat browns. Add salt, oyster sauce and some black pepper if you like. Drop in the prepared long beans, add some water or stock, about 1/3 cup and stir fry the meat and vegetables until the beans are tender. If necessary add water a tablespoon at a time to keep the dish moist but not too saucy. Add salt to taste.
