Chicken and Garlic Green Bean Stir-Fry / Piletina i mahune sa češnjakom iz woka

This stir fry-is super quick and easy to make and hence an excellent option to keep in your arsenal for busy weeknight days. It also reheats great, so you can whip up some extra for meal prep. In this recipe I used pork lard for frying, but feel free to substitute this with neutral oil of your choice.

METHOD:

Wash and pat dry the meat, then cut it into small cubes and toss together with salt and pepper. Place a wok on medium-high heat and fry the meat in a bit of pork lard until crispy. I suggest you fry the meat in two or three small batches to ensure the maximum crispiness. Towards the end of frying, sprinkle the meat with corn starch and cook for additional minute or two. Remove all the meat from wok and set aside.

Add a bit more lard to the same wok and throw in minced garlic, green beans and red pepper flakes. Cover your wok with a lid and cook for about five minutes, until the green beans are cooked through, while stirring occasionally. Return the meat to the wok, add in soy sauce and sesame oil, give a good stir and cook for additional minute or two.

Serve immediately over a bed of cooked rice, drizzled with Sriracha and sprinkled with sesame seeds.

Ovo jelo iz woka je jako brzo i jednostavno za pripremiti pa je stoga super za imati u arsenalu kada vam treba nešto za užurbani tjedan. Također se i dobro podgrijava pa je dobra opcija i za prirediti unaprijed. Ja sam u ovom receptu upotrijebila svinjsku mast za prženje, ali vi ju slobodno zamijenite sa nekim neutralnim uljem po vašem izboru.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 7,05 kn po porciji / 28,21 kn za sve)

Za meso:

1 velika pileća prsa bez kosti i kože (15,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

1 žlica svinjske masti (0,10 kn)

1 žlica kukuruznog škroba (0,10 kn)

Za wok:

1 žlica svinjske masti (0,10 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka, sjeckana (1,00 kn)

500 g smrznutih zelenih mahuna (7,50 kn)

Prstohvat sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,15 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (1,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,50 kn)

Po izboru za posluživanje:

2 žlice Srirache (2,00 kn)

2 žlice sezama (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite i kuhinjskim ručnikom posušite meso. Narežite ga na kockice, pa začinite sa solju i paprom. Duboku tavu ili wok stavite na srednje jaku vatru, pa na svinjskoj masti ispržite meso dok ne bude hrskavo. Moja je sugestija da meso pržite u dvije ili tri manje ture radi maksimalne hrskavoće. Prema kraju prženja posipajte meso sa kukuruznim škrobom i pržite još dodatnu minutu-dvije. Svo meso maknite iz woka i držite sa strane.

U isti wok dodajte još malo masti i ubacite unutra sjeckani češnjak, mahune i čili. Poklopite wok i kuhajte oko pet minuta dok mahune ne omekšaju. Prema potrebi koji puta promiješajte. Meso vratite u wok, dodajte soja sos i sezamovo ulje, te dobro promiješajte. Kuhajte još koju minutu.

Poslužite odmah preko kuhane riže, pokapano Srirachom i posipano sezamom.
