Sauteed String Beans, Pork and Shrimp
Sauteed String Beans, Pork and Shrimp is divine. It’s tasty, flavorful, and best paired with steaming hot rice.
I love string beans… the crunchy skin, sweet kicks, and chewy texture of the seeds are something I used to enjoy. I won’t back down in eating them even if it’s just cooked the most simple way.
Simple as it may seem, cooking string beans by just sauteeing them is already a dish to die for. What more if we’ll add pork and shrimp? It’s divine. The flavors of the pork and shrimp go well with the sweetness of the string beans. The herbs? Fantastic!
