"Snap Beans Easy Saute"

With most beans, you eat only the seeds usually after they've been dried. But you can eat snap beans pod and all. Here in the Philippines, oftentimes, snap beans are called Baguio beans.

Good for 3 servings.

You'll need:
  • 2 tbsps of vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 1 medium red onion, minced
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, minced
  • 350 grams snap beans, remove both ends
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 pc pork cube
  • 2 tbsps of oyster sauce
  • 1/3 tsp of ground black pepper

Here's how:

Slice thinly the snap beans at an angle (diagonal-cut). Set aside.

In a pan, saute garlic in oil until light golden brown. Put onion and tomatoes. Cook until soft. Add the snap beans. Stir-fry for about 10 seconds. Throw in the rest of the ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Cover. Cook until done.
