Longbean Baskets with Pork and Salted Fish September 26, 2006

Posted by Angeleyes in Creative Concoction, Meat.

I have a bundle of longbeans and have no idea what to do with them. Was thinking to just stir-fry with some meat but the idea was rather boring so came up with this dish instead.


The process does look rather intricate but fret not! It’s rather easy to do and it taste good too! 🙂 


  • 12 stalks longbeans
  • 300gm Pork
  • 15gm salted fish (mui heong type)
  • 2 pcs chili padi
  • 1 tsp corn flour
  • pepper to taste
  • water


  • 1 tsp Corn flour
  • 30 ml water
  • Pepper
  • Soy sauce


  1. Boil water with a little oil and salt and put in longbeans and boil until 80% soft. Take out and let it cool.
  2. Minced the pork and add in chopped salted fish and chilies with corn flour and some water (to hold the mixture together). Mix well and add in a dash of pepper.
  3. Weave the longbeans into a basket shape.

  5. When all the longbenas have been weaved, stuff the minced pork mixture on top of the basket.filledweavelongbeans.JPG
  6. Heat up the frying pan or wok and add in a little oil and start frying the baskets (the top first).
  7. When all the baskets are all golden brown…lift them up from frying pan.
  8. To prepare the sauce, mixed all the ingredients. Heat up the wok with a little oil and pour in the mixture and stir slowly until it boils. Glaze the baskets with the sauce.
