2 pounds string beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 cloves garlic, minced
8 thin slices peeled ginger, diced
1 medium white onion, halved and thinly sliced crosswise
1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Pinch ground white pepper
1 teaspoon soy sauce


Blanch the beans in boiling water for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, drain, and shock the beans in a bowl of ice-cold water. Drain when cool.

Heat the oil in a wok, add garlic and ginger, and stir-fry briefly. Add the onion and wine and stir-fry for 1 minute, then add the string beans and stir-fry for 3 minutes.

Season with sugar, salt, and white pepper. Finally, add the soy sauce and stir-fry for an additional 1–2 minutes. Remove and serve.
