20-minute dish! Stir-fry sauce and sesame seeds give green beans an Asian flair.
Updated February 1, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup stir-fry sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili garlic paste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 6 cups fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seed

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, mix stir-fry sauce and chili garlic paste; set aside.
  • 2
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until very hot. Add green beans. Toss in hot oil and cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring every minute, until bright green and crisp-tender (mixture may spatter during cooking). Beans will sizzle, blister and brown in spots. Remove from heat.
  • 3
    Remove beans from skillet with slotted spoon; add to sauce mixture and toss to coat. Place in serving bowl; sprinkle with sesame seed.

  • For recipes like this that tend to spatter during cooking, use a spatter guard screen, available at many department and specialty food stores.
  • Not a fan of spice? Decrease the chili garlic paste to 1 teaspoon.
