Gan Bian Si Ji Dou – Sichuan Dry-Fried Green Beans

This is one of Sichuan’s most famous vegetable dishes.

Gan Bian Si Ji Dou - Sichuan Dry-Fried Green Beans
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 300 g green beans, cut into 5 cm lengths
  • 60 g pork mince (ground pork)
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped pickled mustard greens
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese cooking wine
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Heat 2 tablespoon oil in a 35cm flat-bottomed wok or 30cm skillet over medium-high; add beans, and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Transfer to a bowl, and set aside; return wok to high heat.
  3. Add remaining oil, and then add pork; cook, stirring constantly, until browned, about 2 minutes.
  4. Return beans to wok along with greens, cooking wine, and soy sauce, and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 3 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat, and stir in sesame oil; season with salt and pepper.
Renditions vary, but the process of cooking it yourself - choosing whether it should be mild or spicy, garlicky or gingery, or if it should include dried chillies, salted black beans, or pork mince - is what makes the dish so likable.
