Cooking Tips
Boil the streaky pork to medium well-done in advance. The added ginger slices and Chinese prickly ash and cooking wine helps to remove the smell. If the chopstick is easily stuck in, it is all right. When blanching green beans, adding salt and several drops of oil can help to keep the jade green color and luster. Remember to boil it for longer time, because not well-done green beans easily poison people.  First stir fry the thick broad-bean sauce produced in Pi County. When red camphor oil comes out, add the pimiento and garlic cloves and stir fry them together. When flavor comes out, stir fry the streaky pork. When part of the grease comes out and the pork is slightly scorched, stir fry the green beans. Finally add a little sugar and salt. Pay attention to the amount of salt, because the thick broad-bean sauce is salty.
