Spicy French Beans with Minced Meat

I guess the role of a home cook is not only to produce tasty and healthy meals, but also to avoid any wastage of food. Careful meal planning is needed especially for someone like me, who only cooks twice a week.

I wasn't quite sure of what I should do to the extra minced pork initially. There is no way that I will leave it for next week, as it wouldn't be fresh anymore. So I decided to use it together with the french beans and my, what a good choice! The two ingredients really complement each other well.


  • 100g minced meat
  • 1 handful of French beans
  • Spicy Dou Ban Jiang
  • 1 tsp minced garlic

  • 1 tbsp spicy Dou Ban Jiang
  • 50ml water
  • 1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sugar


1) Stir-fry garlic
2) Add minced meat and stir till it changes colour
3) Add spicy Dou Ban Jiang and French beans and continue stirring
4) Add water
5) Add light soy sauce and sugar
6) Simmer until french beans has slightly soften
