Our green bean plants have been doing really well these past few days. So well in fact, they’re growing faster than we can eat them! Usually, Mom makes a green bean stir fry mixed with other ingredients like this green bean stir fry recipe with pork and carrots. But with so many green beans harvested in just one day, it was a no brainer to cook some green beans as its own side dish.

This dish is simple, fast, and can be used on any hard or crispy vegetable. In the past, we’ve used this recipe on broccoli and asparagus most often. Both are on the crunchy side and release very little water when cooking on a hot fry pan. You can also try mixing it up by adding some colorful vegetables like onions and carrots.

Aloha with love,
