  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
  • 5 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 cups green beans



  • This is optional if you want brighter and more colorful beans
  • Cut the stem ends off by hand, or use kitchen scissors.
  • Prepare a pot large enough to hold the green beans you plan to cook.
  • Bring the water to a rapid boil with salt.
  • Boil the green beans for 20 seconds.
  • Put them in ice water to cool them off and stop the cooking process.
  • Pat dry after removing from ice water
  • Blanching the green beans will form smaller, more uniform blisters when fried, very similar to the Din Tai Fung green beans but it won't change the flavor as much.


  • Place a deep skillet or wok over high heat and add enough oil to deep-fry green beans.
  • You can test the temperature of the oil by dropping a green bean in the pan. In order for the oil to be hot enough, it must bubble and fry immediately.
  • Cook your green beans just until the skin blisters and wrinkles, about 30 seconds to a minute.
  • Place them on a rack or plate lined with paper towels. Make sure they are dry before continuing to the next step.
  • Now your green beans are ready to be fried with your garlic.
  • In another hot pan, add a tablespoon of oil
  • Sauté the garlic until it becomes fragrant. This may take only a few minutes.
  • Then add the green beans and sauté together for 30 seconds - 1 minute.
  • Serve immediately.
