“I discovered this dish at my mother-in-law's house during a family holiday buffet. Her being Japanese, she had many friends who brought wonderful Japanese dishes, and this was and has remained one of my favorites. It's light and fresh any time of the year.”

Directions

  1. Warm a large skillet or wok over medium heat. When the skillet is hot, pour in canola and sesame oils, then place whole green beans into the skillet. Stir the beans to coat with oil. Cook until the beans are bright green and slightly browned in spots, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in soy sauce; cover, and let sit about 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter, and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

Delicious, pretty and different. I found I needed to cover the pan a few minutes to ensure the beans were cooked crisp-tender before they would turn too brown. I finished these with a dribble of toasted sesame seed oil at the end which really enhanced the flavor, and I believe this would have been kind of boring without it. These were so good and flavorful that this is one of those rare occasions where the addition of garlic wouldn't necessarily have made this any better.

Very easy and delicious. Everyone at Thanksgiving dinner loved it. You can substitute asparagus for the green beans and sliced or slivered toasted almonds for the sesame seeds.

I used thawed, frozen green beans and it worked, but would have been better with fresh. I also added a clove of minced garlic to the oil with the green beans and it was exactly what I was looking for, YUMMY! UPDATE: I wanted this again, but had no green beans so I used broccoli instead and it was equally delicious (although I used a little more soy sauce & sesame oil since they soaked it right up)!
