Red long beans are firmer and take a bit longer to cook than regular string beans. Sometimes we add a tablespoon of water and put on a lid for the first minute of cooking to steam and then remove the lid to finish the cooking process. If you want to make this recipe gluten free substitute tamari sauce for soy sauce.
I plan to make this simple little Filipino stir fry for my parents when visiting back in Michigan. You can make Adobong Pulang Sitaw (Long RED Beans with regular String beans as you might not be able to get long red beans unless you have access to an Asian market. However, this dish is just as delicious with regular string beans, just make sure to keep the beans aldente so they keep their delicious crunch.

Seems so exotic and oriental
These beans are gorgeous! I've been looking for a great side that's a bit different from my repertoire, and these would be perfect! The flavors sound just wonderful!

Buona notte, BAM! I've seen long green beans at both the farmers markets and Asian markets but haven't noticed their red cousins. We've a sizable Filipino population, so, I bet red long red beans can be found here somewhere. I need to do some research. Dinner in 7 minutes? I am soo there, BAM!
I didn't know there was such a thing as red beans–I think I'd love this side dish and will be on the lookout for those beans! 🙂
