Tips and tricks to make perfect stir-fried beef and string beans

  1. Use high heat: Stir-frying is a quick cooking method that requires high heat. Make sure your wok or skillet is very hot before adding the ingredients.
  2. Cook the beef and string beans separately: To ensure that everything is cooked perfectly, it’s best to cook the beef and string beans separately. This also helps to prevent the string beans from becoming too soggy.
  3. Don’t overcook the string beans: String beans should be cooked until tender-crisp and slightly charred. Overcooking them can make them mushy and unappetizing.
  4. Use a flavorful sauce: The sauce is what really brings this dish together, so make sure it’s flavorful and well-balanced. The combination of soy sauce, fish sauce, and oyster sauce in this recipe is a great starting point.
