Serves 4
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 lb Chinese long beans, trimmed and cut into 3" pieces
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp oyster sauce, divided
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • Salt
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

In a frying pan or wok over medium-high heat, add oil. When oil shimmers, add beans and cook, tossing often, until blistered, about 3 minutes.

Add water, 1 tablespoon oyster sauce, and soy sauce and cover. Decrease heat to medium and cook beans until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Uncover and let cook until liquid evaporates. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 minutes. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oyster sauce, season with salt, and sesame oil and toss to combine. Garnish with sesame seeds.
