STIR-FRIED YARD LONG BEANS
Long Beans - cut into 2 inch pieces, about 2 heaped cups total
Garlic - 3 to 4 cloves, minced
Sriracha chilli sauce - 2 to 3 tsp
Soy Sauce - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 to 3 tsp
1) Heat oil in a pan on medium and add the garlic and a bit of salt... make sure they don't burn or turn too brown.
2) While they are sizzling and still pale, stir in the chilli sauce & soy sauce and after about 30 seconds or so, toss in the beans and stir-fry on medium high for about 3 minutes or so. Adjust salt at this stage.
3) Add about 2-3 tbsp of water, cover and allow to cook on medium (don't lower the flame too much). Open the lid after about 4 to 5 minutes or when all the water is almost evaporated and check for doneness. It should be still a little bit crunchy but cooked. If not, add a sprinkle more of water and let it stay for a few minutes longer.
4) When done, open the lid and let most of the remaining water (if any) evaporate. It's now ready to serve and is wonderful on it's own or with some rice.
