String beans are loved by many people because they are healthy and delicious. Like all legumes string beans are rich in protein and fiber and low in fat. String beans can be prepared in many different ways but for me there is no better string bean dish than the popular Sichuan dish called Dry-Fried String Beans.
Known for its great flavor and outstanding texture, Dry-Fried String Beans is arguably one of most well known Chinese string bean dishes served in virtually every Chinese restaurants ranging from takeout joints to high end places.
Traditionally, the string beans are first deep fried to seal the natural flavor. Then they are cooked using a special technique called dry-frying – a frying technical that involves high heat, and little to no liquid. The technique is the key behind that famous slightly crunch outside but soft inside texture.
