Crisp Green Beans with Pork Belly

  • TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 6
  • FAST

At his San Francisco restaurant, the Slanted Door, Charles Phan stir-fries green beans and meaty mushrooms in peanut oil for customers who want a satisfying vegetarian dish. But he actually prefers the version here, which in typical Vietnamese fashion uses a small amount of rich and tender pork belly to imbue the beans with succulent flavor.

  1. 1 pound green beans, cut into 2-inch lengths
  2. 1 tablespoon canola oil
  3. 1/2 pound skinless pork belly or pancetta, sliced 1/4 inch thick and cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces
  4. 1/4 cup Chinese cooking wine, sake or water
  5. 1/2 cup Vietnamese Stir-fry Sauce
  1. In a saucepan of boiling water, cook the green beans until crisp-tender, 5 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water, then pat dry.
  2. In a large skillet or a wok, heat the oil until small puffs of smoke begin to appear. Add the pork belly in a single layer; cook over high heat, turning once, until golden, about 3 minutes. Add the wine and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the Vietnamese Stir-fry Sauce and cook over moderate heat until the pork is tender, about 3 minutes longer. Add the green beans and cook over moderate heat until tender, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a platter and serve.
Serve With Steamed jasmine rice.
