Braised French Beans with Tung Hoon

Yummy Bakes | 3:51 PM |
Another great and easy dish from the book "All about Vegetables.  The book is about all vegetables and I am someone who never loves vegetables when younger but now loving more variety of stir-fry veggies.

I think I have put in a little too much French beans. haha

450g French beans
80g minced pork (omitted cos I forgot to buy)
2 bundles tung hoon
1 tbsp chopped spring onion

1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup water
dash of sesame oil

  1. Trim the two ends and tough fibre of the French beans, cut into sections.  Soak tung hoon until soft.
  2. Heat 3tbsp oil and fry French beans over high heat for about 3 minutes until they soften.  Remove.
  3. Add minced port and fry until the meat separates, toss in chopped spring onions, add dark soy sauce, salt and water.  Lastly, add French beans and cook for about 3 minutes.
  4. Add tung hoon and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes.  Turn up the heat to reduce the gravy if you prefer.  Lastly, add sesame oil.


  1. Interesting! Going to try this once I get the beans.

  2. I love French beans and can eat a lot especially your plate is full of French beans.

  3. adding tung hoon to french bean is something new to me, i love tung hoon especially tunghoon crabs and the loh hon chai with tunghoon!

  4. Love French bean. I'll cook French bean fried rice to dinner today. I'll try this recipe. Sounds yummy. I can have it as one-pot dish.
