Stir-fried Beans

In my opinion, this stir-fried beans recipe is one of my best test recipes that I’ve ever cooked.

I hate eating beans because they give me goosebumps whenever I take a bite of crunchy, half-cooked beans.

Para kasing kumakain ako ng plastic whenever I take a bite, nagtataasan ang mga balahibo ko.

When my wife asked me to cook a beans dish similar to what she had tasted before, I gave it a try and was amazed with the result.

It's so easy to cook and costs less than a hundred pesos for a 4–5 person serving.

It is also very delicious, with a sweet and rich sauce paired with the crunchy cooked beans.

I asked my son to try it, he loves trying something new every time.

Just like a judge critiquing a dish in a cooking contest, he gave me a two thumbs up saying “ GRABE, sarap pala nyan Daddy" with a happy and satisfied face, that he devoured 3 plates of rice effortlessly at dinner time.

So now, I promise you that this dish will give you and your loved ones a “face of satisfaction” once they try it.

Simple but bursting with flavor!
