Spicy Green Beans and Pork, Asian Style
My favorite side dish to order in Chinese restaurants. A chef gave me the ingredients and the tip of blistering the green beans. After some trial and error, I came up with this. My family and friends now demand that it be on the menu for gatherings - even if it doesn't go with the course! Can be made in advance. The amount of heat is determined by the amount of chili garlic sauce used.
It is important to use an Asian/Chinese Style chili garlic sauce in this recipe (found in almost all Chinese/International sections of stores, or buy from web sites). Fresh garlic, ginger and onions are also key to an authentic taste.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
