I first remember eating beans cooked this way at Billy Kwong’s restaurant in Surry Hills.  Hers were tossed in a miso sauce, but since I cook these as a side to my Tofu, Eggplant and Pork Mince Stir-fry, I find that the plain version works too.

Serves 4

Dry Fried Green BeansIngredients

500g green beans, trimmed

Vegetable oil for frying

Salt to season


1. Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat

2. Add beans and sprinkle with salt

3. Spread the beans around the pan to make a single layer

4. Turn the heat down to low and cook until the beans shrivel up, turning occasionally.  This can take 20 minutes or more
