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
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.
