I was recently given some homegrown runner beans by a friend and remembered a recipe my mum cooked last year when she came to visit us in Summer using mangetout beans, so I am sharing the recipe here for you to try. You can omit the prawns for mushrooms and swap the anchovies granules for vegetable stock granules if you want to make this dish a vegetarian dish. I served the stir-fry runner beans with Sambal Belancan (spicy sambal), Portuguese Beef Semur and Tuna Cutlet for dinner.
Here’s a short youtube video on how to make the Stir-Fry Runner Beans.

- Runner Beans (Topped, tailed and cut into 1 inch length)
- Small Onions, quartered
- 2-3 Garlic Pips, sliced
- 1 inch Ginger Julienne
- A Small piece of Stock Cube (Vegetable or Anchovies) - I have used a quarter size of the square mixed with 1 cup water
- Fresh Prawns (or substitute it for fresh Mushrooms)
- 2 tbsp White Sesame Seeds
- 1 tbsp Sesame Oil
- 2-3 tsp Light Sauce
- Pinch of White Pepper
- Pinch of Salt
1. Toast the Sesame Seeds on heated dry pan until the seeds get nice and golden in colour
2. Add a tablespoon of oil in pan, stir fry the quarteres onions, julienne ginger and sliced garlic for a few minutes until it softens
3. Add in fresh prawns (I have used cooked and frozen) and stir fry. You can sub this for fresh mushrooms if you want it to be fully vegetarian.
4. Stir in the runner beans
5. Mix in light sauce, salt, white pepper, sesame oil and give it a quick stir. Then add in the vegetable or anchovies (ikan bilis) stock which has been diluted in hot water.
