This is basically a stir fry recipe. You cook the frog legs till about halfway (step 1) and add it to the rest of the stir fry to finish cooking (step 4). So, you'll need two woks, or a pot and a saute pan: one to deep fry the frog legs and one for the stir fry.

Put the half cup of oil in the pan to fry the legs. Remove them to paper towels. Drain out the leg oil.

Add 3 T oil back to the hot wok and sauté the peppers and garlic and beans. Return the legs and the ingredients from the seasoning list. In a bowl or cup, mix the cornstarch and water. When you add that to the ingredients in the wok, it will make a sauce. It will thicken quickly. Once it does, cook for another minute and then serve.

I nearly choked when I saw the ingredient "cooking wine" listed in this recipe. Whatever you do, DON'T use the product labeled "Cooking Wine." You will be sorry if you do. Use only wine that you would drink. Cooking wine is made with tons of sodium and is not the wine you want to put in your food. For Asian cooking I prefer sherry, but you can use any wine you want except those labeled "cooking wine."
