Noob Cook Tips

  1. For best results, choose French beans which is light green rather than dark green.
  2. Slice the French beans according to your desired thickness. You can slice them as thinly as those in my long beans omelette – it will cook faster and also easier to eat.
  3. You may substitute the recipe with long beans or what some supermarkets label as “baby fine beans”.

    Love this simple recipe.
    My version is stir fry the French bean with garlic, minced pork, julienned carrot and scrambled egg.

    This looks so tasty and sounds like something that my boyfriend would like too. Pinned it to my pinterest board so that I remember to make it later

    i usually have french beans with carrot for that splash of color but the yellow of the eggs should be equally amazing and more yummy!
