Delicious Pumpkin and String Beans

Cooking: Pumpkin & String Beans With Minced Beef Sauté

The Delicious Dish With Only 3 Main Ingredients

We are a family of three. Myself, my wife and our 2 year old son. Since I usually arrived home early from work, after picking up our son from his nanny, I would hurriedly prepare our dinner.

With this recipe, delicious dinner can be prepared fast and easy. No separate methods or levels of cooking or whatsoever. This is a sort of straight to the point cooking preparation.

Anyway, this dish is best eaten in any meal time. May it be breakfast, lunch or dinner. :)

Before, I used to have it  half cooked. I want to eat the beans and pumpkins in a crispy like chewing. But since we have a toddler, this time, this should be “well done”.
