Chinese Long Bean and Beef Recipe - Chichilicious

Chinese Long Bean and Beef

These long beans are often found in Asian cuisine, we often order them in Chinese restaurants. They seem to hold their texture better. I stir fried them for 10 minutes and they were still crunchy, you cannot get that with regular green bean.
