Sesame Green Beans

It's hard to believe how just a few ingredients can make green beans taste so wonderfully different.  These were delicious.  I will definitely make these beans again, soon!

1 1/2 pounds green beans, washed and trimmed
1 TBS vegetable oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 TBS sesame seeds, toasted
Coarse salt

Steam green beans covered in a half inch of boiling water for 2 minutes.  Transfer beans to a colander and run under cold water.  Drain well.

Heat a large nonstick frying pan or a wok shaped skillet over high heat.  Add 1 TBS vegetable oil, add sesame oil and crushed pepper flakes.  The pan will smoke.  Carefully, (the oil will splatter) add the beans and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until slightly tender.  Add sesame seeds and coarse salt.  Toss to coat beans evenly.

Makes 4 - 6  servings
