Guessed some of you knew that I loves to eat beans. It’s yummy, nutritious and easy to cook. Steam, stir-fry, deep fried, grill and braise.

I’m going to share this recipe which is one of the all time favourite in my family (my own family, not PiggyBeng’s). In fact I have a cousin who only want this dish everyday! So, when he was staying with us at one time, my mom just cook this dish almost every other day!



  • 12 strands Longbeans – cut to 2″ long
  • 150g Pork loin – cut to strips, marinade with corn flour and soy sauce and pepper
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • Dark soy sauce
  • Light soy sauce
  • 1 chili padi (optional)
  • Water (1/2 cup)


  1. Heat up wok with a little oil and lightly fry the longbeans till light brown, lift up.
  2. Add another 2tbsp oil into wok and sautee chopped garlic then chili padi.
  3. Fry the pork until about 50% cook, add in the longbeans, stir, add dark soy sauce, stir, add water, stir and cover for 5 minutes on slow fire.
  4. Add in light soy sauce, stir, cover till the water starts to thicken (about 15 minutes).
  5. Serve.
