Preparation / Directions:
1.Wash string beans. Cut off ends and string. Cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Dry on paper towel.
2.Heat oil until smoking hot; slide in string beans gently. Deep fry beans until wrinkled, about 5 min. Turn frequently. Drain. Remove.
3.Reheat 2 Tbsp oil in wok. Stir fry ginger for 10 seconds. Add pork. Stir fry until color changes. Add preserved vegetable. Add beans, salt, soy sauce, sugar, and stock. Stir fry 2 minutes or until dry. Add last 3 ingredients. Stir fry for 1 minute or until thoroughly heated.
Serve hot or cold You can find the preserved vegetable in the canned food section of most Asian groceries. I find that stir frying the string beans in a little bit of oil works as well as deep frying them in 2 cups of oil.
