stir-fried long green bean with minced pork

Stir-fried Long Green Bean with Minced Pork : Tuoa Fhak Yaow Phad Moo Sub

Some Thai dish can be so simple and very easy to cook. Like this stir-fry, a tip to cook a good dish is not to over cook the long green bean - should be still crunchy but cooked.

I went to an organic farm a few days ago for a meeting. I got some organic vegetables back home. I totally support & encourage organic products. The problem about organic products is they are more expensive than the usual products in the market. Therefor it put people off - especailly, peole who earn so little. However, If you give yourself a chance to try – you will learn that organic products are worth every bahts you paid for.

Anyway, I cooked this dish for the boys. Oh well, I try to get (force) them to eat more greens.
