Long beans are back in season and this is another version of long beans with minced meat stir fry Singaporean style? I don’t really know how to categories this asian style beans but this is a pretty common dish I would have when I am back in a hawker centre in Singapore. Eaten together with white rice and some other side dishes.

Asian Style Mince meat and long bean recipe

They are real simple to make and I am sure most of you have the ingredients at home already, if you cook asian food often. This version of long bean mince meat is a lighter version than my pervious recipe. Literally. I skipped the dark soy sauce which brought out the sesame oil taste more. I also added a tiny chilli for some additional heat. But that is really optional.

Stir fry long bean and minced meat recipe

We usually have this with white rice and another side dish, like preserved turnips eggs or another stir fry broccoli dish.

Ingredients (Serves 2-3 as a side)

  • 200g Minced pork
  • 200g Long bean
  • 3 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 small chilli (Optional), finely sliced
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tbs oil


  1. Marinate minced pork with 2 tsp soy sauce, 2 tsp sesame oil and pepper. Set aside while you prepare the long bean.
  2. Wash and chop the beans into 1 inch pieces.
  3. Add oil to a heated wok, on high heat, add mince garlic and chilli. Fry for 1 min till fragrant. Then add marinated minced meat. Loosen the meat immediately by ‘chopping’ through the meat with your turner/ spatula.
  4. When more than half of the meat is no longer pink, add long bean and 1 tsp soy sauce. Stir fry and cover the wok for about 2 mins to soften the bean and let the last bit of meat cook through. Season with salt and pepper. You could add a little water if you find the mixture too dry.
