Simple Stir-fry: Green Beans with Chinese Mushrooms and Garlic

Another simple but delicious Chinese stir-fry dish for the busy students, tired moms and plain lazy bums like me :p. Back from a great reunion in NY for MLK weekend means I have to work doubly hard to catch up on our Cardiology course this week. I will still stay true to my New Year resolution and blog as much as possible!

Green beans with the tips chopped off
4 Chinese Mushrooms, soaked till soft & sliced
3 cloves garlic, mashed and diced
Vegetable oil ~ 2 tbsps
Dash of Rice Vinegar/Chinese Cooking Wine
1tsp of soy sauce
Salt to taste

Once you've prepared your ingredients, heat up the pan with the oil. Add garlic and fry till fragrant. Throw in the green beans and add a dash of rice vinegar or Chinese Cooking Wine. This brings out the flavor of the dish more. Add salt and soy sauce to taste. Turn heat to medium and add mushrooms. Cover and cook for another 5 min or so, until green beans are slightly soft but still crunchy.


  1. Looks delicious! I love green beans. Do you have ant sauce on this?

  2. Nope. I just used salt. The flavor is simple with a hint of garlic and mushroom. You can add a dash of soy sauce if you like more flavor.
