String Beans Fried with Eggs

Yet another recipe for fried green string beans, now accompanied by scrambled eggs.

Any kind of string beans will work good for this one: green or yellow, thin or thick, whole or cut – just adjust boiling time so they are cooked enough but not too soft when done.

I don’t think there can be too much eggs used when cooking string beans. Even though there are only 2 on the picture and I ended up using 3, but actually think 4 would be even better, so just cook to your taste!

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: any kind of string beans will work here, green or yellow, the thinner they are the less boiling time they require:

  3. Bring a cooking to boil, salt water and put beans in; cook beans over heavy boiling for 3-5 minutes (as I said before the thinner string beans are, the less time they need to be boiling), just try them from time to time – they should be not too soft and even crispy when you bite one (but still beatable):

This recipe reminded me of my childhood. My grandmother used to make something similar but added a little onion and also tomatoes. Thanks!
