I've been making this recipe for many years. I never tried Long Beans before trying this recipe, and I've tried them many times since. This recipe is so delicious you won't believe it. It's beyond flavorful and so hearty I use it as a main course with rice for a vegetarian meal. This is not made with haricot vert or string beans. It's made with Chinese Long Beans which are available at our local farmer's market thanks to a Hmong community we are lucky enough to have. Search them out.
