Pork, Green Beans And Carrots Stir Fry

A green beans dish that does fresh green beans some justice.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • ½ lb pork
  • 1 medium carrot Thinly sliced.
  • 1 bunch green beans Thinly sliced. Mom used a handful.
  • 1 clove garlic Diced.
  • 1 tsp ginger Diced.
  • tbsp shoyu Soy sauce.
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp cornstarch


  • Peel and thinly slice the carrots. Take the ends off the green bean and slice them at a diagonal.
  • Cut the pork into bite-sized pieces and mix in a bowl with garlic, ginger, shoyu, salt, and cornstarch. This will all flavor the pork and allow a fine crust to form as it cooks on the pan.
  • Add about 2 tbsp of olive oil to the pan and adjust the temperature to high. Add the pork and cook until brown.
  • Add the carrots and cook for about 30 seconds.
  • Add the green beans. If these are very fresh, they'll be extremely tender, which is why they'll go in last. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add pepper and salt to taste (Mom put in about 1 tsp each). Add shoyu and cook for 30 seconds. Turn off the stove and add sesame seed oil. Mix one more time and serve.


  • Make sure your beans are young and tender. If they're too old (basically if they're too big), they'll be tough and chewy.
