Stir-Fry Long Bean With Preserved Radish


Fancy having some simple stir-fried vegetable for dinner? If yes, do try this simple and easy stir-fried dish. If you can't get hold of long beans, you may consider using some french beans (green beans) instead. Have a go and happy cooking ;-)

Ingredients

200 g Long Beans, sliced (about 3/4 inch)
200 g ( 1 Packet) Firm Tofu, diced
3 Tbsp Chopped Preserved Radish

2 tsp Oyster Sauce
2 tsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Peanut Oil
A few drizzle of Sesame Oil
2 Tbsp Water

Method

In a wok, heat the peanut oil and fry the tofu until light golden brown in color. Drain well on a paper towel.

Then add the garlic and preserved radish and cook until fragrant. Mix in the long beans and tofu and continue frying for 2 minutes.

  3. Hi, can I get your advise on the preserved radish (choy poh).
    I'm confused with the many types sold & unsure which to buy for this recipe.
    1) Minced sweet preserved radish
    2) Minced salty preserved radish
    3) Preserved radish strips

    Thanks.
