Method for Long Beans in Sweet Soy, 'Kacang Panjang Kecap'

Put garlic, fresh shallots, and 2 tablespoons water into a mortar and pestle and smash into a smooth paste. Set aside.

Heat oil in a wok over medium-low heat. Add paste and cook, stirring, about 8 minutes. Add long beans and chiles, stir to combine. Add kecap manis and 1/4 cup water, stir to coat. Increase heat to medium high and stir-fry until beans are barely fork tender, 6-8 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Season with salt to taste and transfer to a large bowl.

Let beans rest for about 10 minutes before serving, to allow flavors to intensify. Garnish with generous amount of fried shallots, and serve with festive yellow rice. Enjoy!
