Stir Fried String Beans with Minced Pork , Tofu and Preserved Kale in Olive Oil
click at your own risk !
This is a popular dish served in most restaurant here . Sans tofu .
I made this kind of dish from to time but without using this preserved kale in olive oil . 'tis the first time that I used this condiment -but not the first time to try it as some noodle shop add it as a garnish to their noodles - and was quiet surprised how it transformed my same ol' same ol' stir fried string beans to something much more appetizing .
When you open the bottle you might say ekkkkk as the color's beyond description heh ! but it smells okay .
