Servings 4 people


  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 lb fresh green beans, washed and sliced diagonally
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce


  • Trim and wash your green beans. Cut off the ends and discard. Slice them diagonally (French style). If you do a good job slicing them and they're thin, you can skip the next step.
    If you aren't great at slicing and they're mostly still whole and plump, blanch them in boiling water for 3-4 minutes.
  • Over medium heat, add oil to your pan. Stir-fry with your onions until they're translucent and soft, about 1-2 minutes. Add your green beans and garlic. Sauté until the beans are soft, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Crack your eggs and them to the pan. Add the fish sauce and stir-fry until the eggs are cooked.
  • Remove from heat and eat with rice, dipped in fish sauce or soy sauce.
