Shrimp and Chicken Fried Rice wt String Beans

This summer my home grown organic string bean plants produces abundance of green beans for me.Usually every summer I loves to buy green string beans from farm market but this year I bought none at all!! So far my string beans plants still produce wonderful string bean .I been harvesting the green bean almost every other day and store in Ziploc bag..Well,what to do with all this healthy and green beans? Since we love fried rice very much,why not use string beans with the fried rice..it's really taste crunchy and crisp!!





Ingredients:

3 cups cooked cold Jasmine rice,overnight prefer
15 pieces small shrimp,shelled and deviened
1 large piece boneless chicken breast,sliced
1 large onion,peeled and diced
1 lb or more green string bean,removed both end tips and cut small
4-5 eggs
2 tbsp chicken boullion powder
1 tbsp ground white pepper powder
2 tbsp oyster sauce
salt to taste
2-3 tbsp cooking oil
3-4 cloves fresh garlic,peeled and chopped



Method:
1:Heat large skillet or wok at medium high heat with oil.Crack eggs into wok when it's hot,scramble eggs for 1 minutes,then dish out and set aside.
2:Use the same wok,add in some oil and garlic,fry garlic for 30 seconds,then add in sliced chicken and shrimp,cook for 1-2 minutes,add in diced onion ,string beans,jasmine rice and all the seasoning.Keep frying and tossing all the ingredients at high heat for 8-10 minutes or until the rice dancing in the wok..Toss in the scramble eggs with the rice.
3:Check the seasoning before dish out and serve warm.

I notice the string bean plants produce 2 kind of shape beans..some beans look more round and some are more flat!! Now I wonder,what is the different between french bean and string bean?

So wonderful to be able to harvest your own string beans! Wah, the prawns look so succulent, making this fried rice such a mouth watering meal!

Wow look at those shrimps- they are huge. Fresh shrimps are so pricey on my end, even the cooked frozen ones. I think I should plant my own green beans next year...they are my favorite too.

yea,maybe you should plant your own vegetables when you move to TX.Tx have better weather than North..all year long is hot weather ,right? I used to buy shrimp at regular(kwailo) super market but it's tasteless...Now I only buy my seafood at Asian market..At least the shrimp taste like shrimp but some chewy tasteless rubber!
