YEP, Tao is a bichon! It's not mine, it's my daughter's and I am dog sitting while she gets ready to move to Dubai. Tao currently lives in Amsterdam.When I see how you cook … I understand your Bichon has a weight problem, how can he say no! ha ha ha
This looks really yummy.Though I wonder where I can get fermented black bean and preserved soya bean paste… Do you think I can find in a Chinese grocery store?
hi anncoo, my girl loves french beans and tot of cooking it with shimeji mushrooms tomorrow.. 🙂
Very tasty! This is one of the few ways that I actually like beans.
This is one of my all-time favorite dishes! Your photo is wonderful (now you have me craving this for dinner!)Very nicely done. ~m.PS Your blog is lovely. 🙂
A very delicious homey dish!
CBL: Oh really! Then go ahead and do it 😀
I love the bright color of your beans. I know I'm always going to find something new and delicious on your blog!
Anncoo,Bingo, guess what, my mum also told me the same thing!
Foot4Tots & Barbara: Thank you for your compliments:)Simone: This method is done by all chefs in Chinese restaurant. Because after blanched you can get a good crunch and nice green colour of the French bean. 2-3 minutes blanching is enough after that you need to stir fry for another few minutes.
That looks very inviting…good click too 🙂
Leslie: Thank you 🙂
I also love to eat French Bean very much. Actually you can slice it finely and fried rice.
these look amazingly tasty!
Hi Anncoo,You know after I preg, I got craving for french beans, I cooked french beans twice recently. Will share my version soon. I never try french beans with bean paste before, will definitely try your recipe next time.
I love the colors and the simplicity of this recipe and above all the taste with all these spices
Sounds a bit spicy which is good. It sure must be fun eating at your home. Joyce
Mysweetkitchen: Hope you like this after trying it.

Une fois encore je me regale devant tes plats, bonne soiree Doria
hi…i come to c wat to eat tonight…haha…i like french beans oso but wat is this Fermented black bean called in mandarin?
This looks delicious! Is blanching the green beans for 2 minutes really enough? I do stirfry them quite often but feel I have to cook them for about 6 minutes to get the right consistency. It looks wonderful
I Love the flavor of Dried Shrimp…combined with everything else…simply delicioso !
Black bean is 豆豉. Pls refer another recipe at Label~Chicken: Steamed Chicken Wings in Black Bean Sauce.
I used to cook this with tau cheong but never thought of adding salted black beans. Yumm.. will try next time.
Another recipe with dried shrimp in it. Ronny loves dried shrimp for some reason. Maybe he'll like his green beans better if they are cooked with dried shrimp!
Love sti fried veggies!
Wenn & Gaga: Thank you *L*
i love french beans stir-fried in any way..
I do something similar but without the fermented bean paste. I'll give it a try next time, it sounds tasty!
Yumm. This looks wonderful! I must make this soon.
This looks so good… yummy yummy…
Yum, I missed pork so much! Haven't taken it for a long time. Non of my family likes pork so I don't cook them at all.
I like french bean too, will try this one day…looks yummy.
Love this dish…brings me memories of my childhood…nice picture!
Aiyoyo ! I love this dish lot , great with porridge and piping hot rice…. kids will love it too.
Thank you my dear friends for reading this post 😀
i love beans . this looks really tasty and perfect over steamed rice..
Joyce: Actually this is not really that spicy. You can just omit adding chilli.
Laura: I only feed her one meal per day and of course not too much goodies because of her weight.
Chapot, Kothyavunu, Doria, SIS:
Thank you for your compliments.
Nat: Yep, Dried shrimp can go with anything~soup,stew or even spring roll…
Coleen: Chinese cooking must have meat on the table, so you can see many meat combination. Why not try this with chicken or beef,if you don't have the black bean or soya bean, can use oyster sauce too.
hungry tummies: Yes, Is really yummy too t eat with porridge.
I can see that being very tasty with rice porridge
This looks different and delicious! Thanks!
I can eat this with rice, porridge or on its own 🙂
FLB: Is better to blanch the French bean or long bean, even broccoli so you won't overcooked it. And you can feel the crunch of the bean.
MMMM delicious I love green beans! Thanks for sharing this recipe 🙂
I love green beans and this looks delicious. I often put crisp bacon in my beans, but I never thought of other kinds of pork. Thank you.
Simple, delicious, and flavorful! I love this especially with the french beans still crunchy and not too overcooked.
