Good idea, but the additions to the beans are all overkill in proportion. I used half of the sesame seeds and my beans were swimming in them. Same with the soy sauce and the amount of oil was totally unnecessary.


I didn't use nearly as much oil as the recipe called for and I used a mixture of part sesame and vegetable. I used just a sprinkling of sesame seeds rather than what the recipe stated. Just a couple of changes and this recipe is great.


Made this recipe with fresh green beans. It was good- felt it was missing something though. Perhaps a bit of garlic...
