Lueen Kuan Tar Chee Pak Kwai

A flowery name has to be given to this simple dish which is long beans fried with minced pork. It's origin could be sichuan as it is spicy. 'Lueen' means young, 'kuan' is a baton, 'Chee Pak Kwai' is the piggy god in the chinese legend - The monkey god. 'Tar' is to beat or fight. so, figure it out.

Dear Lily,
Please pardon me! I would suppose your yummy dish name is 亂棍打死豬八戒, is 亂 not 嫩 as these two words sound similar in Cantonese!
I hope you read Chinese, as 亂 means 'disorderly'.
