Dry sauteed string beans

Does anyone have a recipe for dry sauteed string beans as served at Wu Liang Ye in Manhattan? I've had this dish at several other locations, but the ones at Wu Liang Ye are truly "dry" sauteed, with a magic pork mixture called "Yibin city spice." And the string beans taste roasted rather than sauteed. I could eat a giant bowl of these in one sitting. Please help.

  1. Fuschia Dunlop has a recipe in Land of Plenty that I'm sure will be to your liking. Check out the Dunlop cookbook of the month threads from March(?) There maybe some postings on it..She calls it "Dry Fried" I believe.

      Uh oh. I think I've discovered a new obsession. These threads are so informative. I was so fascinated that I just ordered the book from Amazon. Thanks, King.
