Stir-Fried Fava Beans with Minced Pork

As fava bean season continues, I can't seem to resist them. I doubled the amount of the ground pork in the recipe below to make it more of a main dish and a quick and easy dinner. The slightly spicy fava beans made a great combination.

Stir-Fried Fava Beans with Minced Pork (from Revolutionary Chinese Cookbook)

1 1/2 cups shelled fava beans
2 long red chiles, cut crosswise into thin slices
2 garlic cloves, sliced
3 ounces ground pork
1 tsp Shaoxing wine
1 tsp light soy sauce
1/2 tsp dried chili flakes
1 tsp sesame oil
3 tbsp peanut oil

1. Heat wok over high flame. Add 2 tbsp of peanut oil and swirl. Add beans and stir-fry for 1 - 2 minutes until tender. Set aside.
2. Return wok to heat with remaining tbsp of oil. Add red chiles and garlic and stir-fry until fragrant.
3. Add pork and stir-fry until it has changed color, splashing wine around edges and seasoning with soy sauce.
4. Add chili flakes.
5. Return beans to wok and stir-fry briefly.
6. Remove wok from heat, stir in sesame oil, and serve.
