Stir Fried French Beans with Anchovies
This is one dish that appears quite frequently on my table. It's really simple but just a bit of frying if you dont mind. Never actually thought of posting this dish up cos it's like something that i cook so often that the idea of sharing never crossed my mind and when it did, i thought maybe it's not that impressive. I was very wrong cos blogging here is all about sharing in regardless good or bad, pretty or not. Just as i was commenting on someone's blog earlier, i feel so appreciative and thankful to be surrounded by all of you here, always being so supportive and i really want to say thank you. Would like to share more of my home cooked dishes here in the future.
Main Ingredients: ( note that you can always adjust the amount of main ingredients to your liking)
230gm french beans, cut slant into lengths about 5cm
20gm anchovies/ ikan bilis ( , splitted, get the ones suitable for frying)
1 small piece of red capsicum, cut into lengths
1-2 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
oil for frying
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp sugar
1. Light fry french beans in oil until slightly wrinkle. Remove and using the same oil put in the anchovies/ikan bilis and fry them until slight crispy.Remove leaving little oil in the wok.
2. Saute garlics and put the lightly fried french beans, anchovies and capsicum back into the wok. Put in the seasoning and toss them around, stirring them for a minute. Dish up.
I will be sharing this too in the Muhibbah Malaysian Monday Event hosted by Shaz
