When we was in Malaysia during our summer vacation,my mom realised Mishu loves bean sprout and fish cake .My mom tried to cooked bean sprout with fish cake every dinner when we was there.I know she only eat certain type of greens.She hates brussel sprout and broccoli.Since I know she love bean sprout,I tried to cook it as much as I can when we came back to States.I think the best way to cook fresh crunchy bean sprout is the wok must be hot and the flame must be high enough (wok hei) when the sprout was toss in.Do not over cooked this type of vegetable if you want to enjoy the best of the bean sprout!!
1-2 lbs fresh bean sprout,rinsed and removed the beans shells if any
5-6 cloves fresh garlic,peeled and sliced
1-2 red chili pepper,sliced
100gm minced meat (pork or any meat)
