Pork mince and beans

This was a favourite dish in Hong Kong and the first we recreated at home. The beans are so tasty cooked this way and the savoury mince makes this much more than a side dish.


2 TbspOil
3 clovesGarlic, finely diced
2 TbspGinger, finely chopped
200 gPork mince
5 tspDark soy sauce
3 tspRice wine
1 tspSugar
400 gGreen beans, topped and tailed
2 tspSesame oil
¼ tspGround sichuan pepper


  1. In a large frying pan or wok, heat oil and add garlic and ginger before adding pork mince and frying for a few minutes.
  2. Add half the soy sauce, rice wine and sugar and fry until mince is cooked through.
  3. Add green beans and fry until cooked through. Stir in remaining soy, sesame oil, sichuan pepper and spring onions before serving.
