Ingredients

2 tbsp vegetable oil

500g snake beans, cut into 6cm lengths

4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1/2 tbsp caster sugar

30ml fish sauce

30ml fresh chicken stock

 

Method

Heat the oil in a wok, until it starts to smoke. Add the beans and stir-fry for about 1 minute. Add the garlic and stir until fragrant.

Add the caster sugar, fish sauce and chicken stock, and stir-fry for another 30 seconds until liquid has slightly reduced. Check seasoning.

HOT TIPS

The beans in this stir-fry are delicious, but replace them with in-season asparagus and it is even more wonderful. Snow peas or bok choy are also fantastic stir-fried.

    Have made these beans on more than one occasion. They are great with the Chicken Kapitain but they are also wonderful as a vegetable accompaniment to a bbq'd steak. As Neil Perry suggests substitute asparagus and it is equally delicious. Handy when snake beans are not in season.
    Really quick, really simple really delicious.
