Pad Phet Sator Moo (Bean Stir Fry with Pork)
This dish is one of my husband’s favorites. He really loves the green fava beans. He said he’s never had them in America, but some ethnic groups in New York love them – so he’s heard.
This bean is from a large pod that may be 1 foot long and 3-4″ wide. They are plentiful here in Thailand. It should be available in the USA in Asian grocery stores. Here’s a great photo of it, look at 5th photo down list “stink bean” they call it. But, it really doesn’t stink! At least we don’t think so, but if you eat it you will smell for the entire day.
This bean has a delicious flavor – just a touch of sourness to it which makes it a very unique taste. As I said, my husband enjoys when I cook this recipe!
