Stir-Fried Beans and Beansprouts

No ratings yet
Small, thin French beans are best for stir- frying and they will give the crunchiest result. Choose button mushroom for this recipe - they make an attractive addition and will give the dish a lighter colour. This crunchy dish makes an excellent accompaniment to roast or grilled meats, particularly steaks and chops.
