Sichuan Dry-Fried Long Beans
Note: Yard-long beans are slightly starchier and more robust than standard American green beans. You can find them year-round in Asian supermarkets. If unavailable, the second choice is dark green French beans (sometimes labeled haricôts verts). Regular American green beans can be used as well. Sichuan preserved mustard root can be found canned or jarred in most chinese markets. It's also called "Sichuan Preserved Vegetable." To use, rinse under cold running water and chop. It'll keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
