aweaome delicious. thank you so much
How about boiling the beans for few minutes and then sauteing and then adding the beans? Would it be any different?
You can do that way also but this taste great. There will be slight taste difference.
You should not boil yard long green beans since it will change the texture and flavor. It should be stir fried first to coat the vegetable in oil and then you can steam it for few minutes. If you boil first, it changes the texture and becomes bland since it absorbs the water. Also, when we steam it we don't add water but let it steam it's own moisture. I've been making this for years using my mom's recipe and no water is added. Other than that, similar recipe to what is posted here. I also grow my own yard long green beans in summer. -Priya Punshi
