This is a popular Szechuan dish. Much better than the traditional green beans, in my opinion.

  • 1 pound Chinese long beans
  • Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon fermented black beans
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chopped ginger
  • 2 scallions, chopped, white part only
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili paste
  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil for stir-frying


  1. Wash the green beans and drain thoroughly. Trim the ends and cut on the diagonal into pieces approximately 2 inches long.
  2. Combine the sauce ingredients and set aside.
  3. Heat the wok on medium heat and add 2 tablespoons oil, drizzling the oil down the sides of the wok. When the oil is hot, add the beans. Stir-fry for 7 - 10 minutes, until their skins pucker and turn brown and the green beans are tender without being mushy. Remove the beans from the wok.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in the wok on medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the chopped garlic, ginger and scallions. Stir-fry briefly for a few seconds until aromatic. Add the chili paste.
  5. Add the sauce and the green beans. Toss the ingredients together and serve hot.
