Noodles Stew with Green Beans

(Last Updated on February 7, 2024 by Amiee)

Today’s noodles stew with green beans is called “豆角焖面” in China that means to put the noodles,  long beans and pork together and simmer until cooked through. It is different from boiling noodles. No need a lot of water, cover the lid until the water dryout and turn off the heat.

For noodle lovers, a bowl of noodles is varied and all-encompassing. It can be breakfast, lunch, dinner, no other dishes are needed, just a bowl of noodles is enough. Cold noodles in summer and hot noodle soup in winter can be a comfort to the soul. Having said so much, it is enough to tell that I am also one of the noodle lovers.

The cities in the north are already icy and snowy in this solar term, and my city is still warm as spring. Then make a bowl of noodles in this warm winter day to enjoy the time.

How to prepare

  • We should buy pork with a little fat and separate the fat and lean when cutting. When cooking, add the fat first, fry until only the meat residue is left, remove it, and continue to fry the lean meat and beans with this oil. The noodles made in this way taste fragrant, compared with vegetable oil.
  • Remove the two ends and the middle line of the green beans before cooking
  • Let the noodles separate and prevent them from sticking together before cooking.
