  • Heat the pork lard over medium-high heat in a covered saucepan (or skillet).
  • Add the beans and cook for 8 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes.
  • Add ginger and garlic and stir fry until toasted (light golden brown). Be careful not to burn as it will give your dish a bitter flavor.
  • Add the soy sauce and chili garlic sauce, cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring periodically to prevent burning. Reduce the heat if the chili starts to burn.
  • Remove from heat and serve.
