Szechuan Green Beans with Ground Pork

My mom arrived in Hong Kong today. The 2nd picture my cousin posted on Facebook of her visit was of the family sitting around a table full of delicious looking food. This is one of my favorite dishes (another from Cooking Light magazine) but I’m sure it in no way compares to the good food at that table. To make it even better I served it with a side of steamed Chinese broccoli. I just couldn’t stop eating!

1/2 pound lean ground pork
1 t. cornstarch
1/8 t. salt
1/8 t. ground white pepper
1 t. peanut oil
2 1/2 c. cut green beans
1 t. minced fresh garlic
2 T. hoisin sauce
1 t. sugar
1 t. crushed red pepper
2 t. soy sauce
2 c. hot cooked white rice

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork mixture, beans, and garlic; cook 3 minutes or until pork loses its pink color, stirring to crumble.

Combine hoisin and next 3 ingredients (through soy sauce) in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add hoisin mixture to pan. cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently. Serve over rice.
