Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1 lb green beans
  • 3 slices of bacon or your choice of meat - try this Char Siu recipe cut into bite size.
  • 1/4 cup Chicken stock

Sauce ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp Toban Jiang Chili Bean Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar reduce the amount of sugar if you don't like sweet
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 medium shallot


Prep the Green Beans:

  • Chop the green beans in half (optional - but it's easier to munch) and cut bacon into bite sizes. Set aside.


  • Mix the sauce ingredients and set aside.

Cook the Beans:

  • Heat the wok and fry the bacon. Cook the bacon until the edges are a bit crispy while releasing enough oil. Add the chopped garlic and shallots and stir fry for 30 seconds.
  • Before the shallots and garlic get burned, pour the sauce mixture and stir for 30 seconds. Then add the green beans.
  • Add the chicken stock and mix well. Cover with lid and let it steam for 10 minutes or until beans are tender crisp. Take off the lid.
  • Stir fry until the sauce thickens a bit and you're done. Serve over jasmine rice.
