Sichuan-Style Green Beans with Pork

Three key ingredients make up this fiery stir-fry from Food & Wine's Justin Chapple: ground pork, green beans and dried hot red chiles. To round it out, Chapple adds just garlic, soy sauce and lime juice. The stir-fry is perfect served over freshly steamed white or brown rice, or even over rice noodles.

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the ground pork and cook over moderately high heat, breaking it up with a fork, until nearly cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the green beans, red chiles and garlic and stir-fry over high heat until the green beans are crisp-tender, about 7 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce and lime juice and season with salt and white pepper. Serve with steamed rice.
