Ginisang Sitaw (Sauteed String Beans)

I grew up in a simple home with simple foods most of the time. When we were young, my late mom used to cook for us some sauteed vegetables and they were really good. One recipe that she used to cook was the ginisang sitaw or sauteed string beans. It was always a hit to me and my siblings. My mom was a great cook and I learned a lot from her. This recipe is so simple to make with just a few ingredients. Here is the recipe from my mom.

1 bundle of sitaw (string beans) cut 2 inch length
1 med chopped onion
3 cloves garlic chopped
1/3 lbs ground pork or beef (optional)
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp brown sugar 
2 tbsp oil
salt and pepper

1. Boil the string beans until it's tender. Drain and set aside.
2. Heat oil in a frying pan. Saute garlic then onion. 
3. Add ground pork or beef and stir fry for about 5 minutes.
4. Add some salt and pepper  and continue cooking the meat in low heat.
5. Add the string beans, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar and stir fry for another 5 minutes or so.
6. Serve with rice.

Looks, yummy! I'm not sure if you like tofu but "sitaw" also goes well with tofu.
