Stir Fry French Beans With Preserved Radish

A Delicious Way To Cook French Beans: Stir Fry French Beans with Preserved Radish 甜菜脯炒四季豆

French Bean With Preserved Radish is a dish comprising of french beans, dried prawns, preserved radish and minced meat. This combination gives this dish a delicious blend of sweet and savoury flavours. Apart from the french beans, the star for this dish is the sweet preserved radish, which is a turnip that has been salted and sweetened to preserve like a pickle. When fried, the preserved radish adds a distinctive crunch and umami flavour to the dish. Normally in hawker’s stalls, the French beans are deep fried in hot oil for a little while before cooking. This step can be omitted when we are cooking it at home, for a healthier version of the dish.

Notes

  • Choose young and fresh french beans as they are more tender and less fibrous.
  • To make sure the french beans used are fresh, try breaking the French bean and it should snap. If it bends limply like a rubber band, then it isn’t fresh.
  • Make sure that the french beans are thoroughly cooked through. Otherwise the flavour will not get into the beans.
  • Just use a little cornflour to marinate the pork as it will cause the minced meat to stick to together while frying. For this dish we want the meat be separated into small pieces so they will be randomly mixed in between the French beans.
