Easy Stir-Fried Pork With String Beans

Pork loves sweet, snappy counterparts—think pulled pork and cole slaw, or pork chops with sautéed apples. Maybe that's why pork and beans are such a classic Chinese combination. In this version, I use sliced marinated pork loin stir-fried very quickly with some blanched green beans, all flavored with ginger, garlic, and a simple marinade. It comes together in just about the same time that it takes to steam a batch of rice, making this a perfect weeknight meal. More

From the Archives: The Ultimate Green Bean Casserole

My mother claims to love the original green bean casserole, created by Campbell's in 1955 to help sell their cream of mushroom soup. You know, the kind where you mix a can of soup with a can of green beans, top it off with canned fried onions and bake it? Here's my opinion: We can do better. Whether we upgrade just the canned green beans to fresh, or go all out and make our own creamy mushroom sauce and fry our own onions (or shallots, as the case may be), it's a dish that's tasty enough to be worth a bit of extra effort.

The Food Lab: Sautéed Green Beans With Mushrooms and Caramelized Cipollini Onions

I generally don't like to apply the terms deconstructed/reconstructed to food because it makes me feel like I'm working on a recipe for a burn victim or perhaps a Brundlefly, but I suppose this recipe fits the bill. It's most of the flavors of a traditional green bean casserole—green beans, onions, and mushrooms—minus the cream, and put together in a less stodgy, altogether tastier way. More

Smashed Green Beans and Potatoes with Pancetta from 'The Glorious Vegetables of Italy'

Dumping green beans in a pot with potatoes and boiling them for 25 minutes, as Domenica Marchetti instructs in The Glorious Vegetables of Italy, sounded like a pretty crazy idea. But I tried it anyway. Once the beans and potatoes were totally tender, I drained them and smashed them up, slowly drizzling in olive oil along the way. Towards the end, I added a pan-ful of crispy pancetta. Somewhere between the first smash and the last, the mushy beans and potatoes transformed into a soft green bowl of creamy comfort food. More
