Healthy Stir-fried Bean Sprouts with Oyster Sauce

Healthy Stir-fried Bean Sprouts with Oyster Sauce

You can make stir fried bean sprouts that aren't watery with one trick. Since they don't become watery, they're great for bentos too!

Ingredients: 2 to 3 servings

Bean sprouts
1 bag
Chikuwa
2 to 3
Oil
1 tablespoon
Salt
about 1/3 teaspoon
Oyster sauce
1 tablespoon
Pepper
a small amount
Daikon radish sprouts
A small amount, to taste

Steps

1. Cut the chikuwa in half, then thinly slice lengthwise. Wash and drain the bean sprouts.
2. Heat a wok with oil, then add salt. Add the bean sprouts and stir fry over high heat until cooked.
3. Some water will come out of the bean sprouts. Discard this along with the excess oil. (You'll be removing excess salt too.)
4. Add the chikuwa, flavor with oyster sauce and pepper, and stir fry quickly to finish.
5. Add radish sprouts or chopped green onions to make it look more appetizing.
