Wok-Seared Sesame Green Beans

Cook green beans in large pot of boiling water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain. Transfer green beans to large bowl of ice water to cool. Drain again. Pat green beans dry. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Wrap green beans in paper towels and enclose in resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate.)

Step 2

Heat oil in heavy large wok or nonstick skillet over high heat. Add green beans and stir-fry until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, and pepper. Stir-fry until sauce reduces slightly and loosely coats green beans, about 2 minutes longer. Add sesame seeds and toss to coat. Transfer green bean mixture to bowl and serve.

Really good! I've used this recipe a few times. usually as an appetizer for an asian dinner.

great mini-recipe! I found this about 10 minutes ago, and now our little batch of beans is almost done. We added lots of fresh pepper to the batter, and didn't bother to make the dipping sauce due to a lack of soy sauce. Also, we only put about a 1/2 inch of oil into our old cast iron skillet because: a. honestly, that's as deep as our deep frying needs to be, and b. that's all the oil we had on hand. Call them low-fat french fries!

I've made this a few times and it's always a big hit. I used Dale's Pale Ale the last time and it was delicious.

yummy. Used mild pepper rings and zucc. spears that were partialy steamed. Great for kids or guests.

I used club soda instead of beer and it was delicious. I did a variety of vegetables, and everything except the mushrooms stayed crip.

I've used this recipe twice now, the first time exactly as printed, with great results. This past week I did a fondue with it, we battered shrimp, scallops, salmon, broccoli, par-boiled sweet potatoes, and zucchini. Everyone loved it.

Fabulous!! Very easy recipe! I could have made double the amount and I still would have had people asking for more! I used an old 16" cast iron fry pan so I could do more than 10 beans at a time and not have to do multiple batches. This is a keeper!

Brilliant and easy side dish. I've always loved tempura and this batter is wonderful. My family woofed it down and are still talking about it. Yummy! - PS. add a little soy sauce to the batter, makes it even better!

Great and I have made them many times. I substituted thin asparagus and it was even a better hit.

If you're a maki-sushi fan, try making these beans as a filling for your rolls! I had green-bean tempura rolls in a sushi bar and I was so glad to find this recipe so I can make them at home.

This was an easy recipe, but I found the kids only ate about 6 green beans each. I think they would have eaten more of them if Iɽ just steamed them. Good for adults though - interesting and different. I was easily able to reheat them in the microwave.

This is a terrrific recipe -- my four kids love it as do my husband and I. I make it often. It makes a nice change from the usual dinner time vegetables.

The 17 and 10 year-old kids loved this! Easy to make. The sesame seeds added a great slightly nutty flavor to the coating. The kids dipped the rest of their chicken and potatoes into the dipping sauce! I'll serve this as either an appetizer or veg. course.

These green beans are delicious. They can be served as an appetizer or as a side dish. If you're bored with traditional style green beans, try these out.

Green Beans with Sesame Sauce Recipe ( いんげんのごま )

TRADITIONAL JAPANESE RECIPE: Green Beans with Sesame Sauce ( ingen no goma-ae いんげんのごま ) make a very simple and healthy side dish. All you need for dinner.

The crispy texture of the bean pods and the savory aroma of the sesame seeds makes it impossible to stop eating!

If you really want to dive into the Japanese tradition, you should use the Suribachi (mortar) and Surikogi (pestle) at home.

The suribachi is a pottery bowl, glazed on the outside and with a rough pattern called kushi-no-me on the unglazed inside. This surface is somewhat similar to the surface of the oroshigane (grater). The surikogi pestle is made from wood to avoid excessive wear on the suribachi. Traditionally, the wood from the sanshō tree (Japanese prickly ash) was used, which adds a slight flavor to the food, although nowadays other woods are more common. The bowls have a diameter from 10 cm to 30 cm. To use the suribachi the bowl is set on a non-slip surface, such as a rubber mat or a damp towel, and the surikogi is used to grind the material. Recently, plastic versions of the suribachi have also become popular, but they have a much shorter lifespan. The suribachi and surikogi arrived in Japan from China around 1000 AD. The mortar was first used for medicine, and only later for food products. A larger sized Japanese mortar used to pound rice is an usu with a pestle called kine.

The highest mountain on Iwo Jima, Mount Suribachi, was named after this kitchen device.

  • 4 medium bone-in chicken thighs (about 5 oz. each), skin removed
  • 4 teaspoons toasted sesame oil or canola oil, divided
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 12 ounces green beans, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted (see Tip)
  • 1 medium scallion, chopped

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place chicken on a large rimmed baking sheet. Brush with 1 tsp. oil and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and 1/8 tsp. salt. Roast for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, toss green beans with the remaining 3 tsp. oil, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, and 1/8 tsp. salt in a large bowl.

After the chicken has roasted for 15 minutes, add the beans to the baking sheet in an even layer around the chicken. Brush hoisin sauce over the chicken. Return to the oven and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the chicken without touching the bone registers 165 degrees F and the beans are tender and beginning to brown, 10 to 15 minutes more.

Combine sesame seeds and scallion in a small bowl. Toss half of the sesame seed mixture with the beans and sprinkle the remaining sesame seed mixture over the chicken.

Tip: Toasting sesame seeds enhances their naturally nutty flavor. You can buy toasted sesame seeds in the spice aisle or toast raw seeds yourself. To toast the seeds, cook in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.

Lovely flavours! It was a real winner. We served it with lemongrass pork and steamed rice.

Tasty and easy. I added Thai curry paste for a little extra punch.

Tasty, but the sweet flavor profile can get a bit monotonous, so keep the servings small.

Good flavor on the sauce. I over-cooked the beans (my fault). But quite tasty and healthy.

Simple and delicious and every member of the family, even those who claim to dislike beans, loved it. I used peanut butter because my almond butter was way past its 'use by' date, but will make it again trying both almond and cashew butter.

This was quick and easy. We used peanut butter and soy sauce, and it still turned out as a tasty side dish!

Yum, Yum!! This was so fast and easy to make, but still had big delicious results. I substituted almond butter for the cashew butter and soy sauce for the tamari, but don't think it drastically changed the flavor. Love that this side can be done ahead and served at room temp - perfect for the picnic/bbq season.

This was great. I used the natural cashew butter as the recipe called for. VERY easy with great results. Would definitely recommend and will make again. Was served with Tuna Kebabs with Ginger-Chili Marinade and Coriander Rice (Epicurious recipes). This side goes very well w/Asian inspired mains exp. marinated grilled meats.

These were really delicious - I used almond butter as the other two reviewers. A simple and tasty way to liven up green beans.

I also used almond butter instead of cashew butter. I could eat the sauce by the spoonful it was so good.

I blanched the beans for a good five minutes. This sauce is delicious and my 3 year old actually liked it!

  • 1 pound/400 grams frozen (thin) green beans
  • Optional: 1/4 to 1/2 pound/100 to 200 grams frozen baby carrots
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic (peeled and finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Bring a small amount of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the green beans and cook until crisp-tender. (You can also use a vegetable steamer.) Drain. If you are using carrots as well, steam them until cooked through and drain.

Warm the oil in a chef's pan or large skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add the steamed vegetables and sauté to coat with the olive oil and garlic.

You’ll find the most gochujang varieties by swinging by an Asian market, but most well-stocked mainstream grocery stores, specialty stores, or organic markets also carry it. There’s always Amazon and online shops too.

4. Sugar

Many of you would ask if you can skip or substitute sugar with a healthier alternative, such as honey and maple syrup. I don’t recommend skipping the sugar because soy sauce is salty and requires balance sweetness to balance out the flavor. As for alternatives, I’ve never used other sweeteners to make Gomaae, so I can’t really share my experience. You can give either honey or maple syrup a try, but go easy as they do have a more pronounced flavor.

Please know that the Sesame Sauce/Dressing is not supposed to be “sauce-y” and you shouldn’t overwhelm the green beans with it. For a half-pound of green beans, you will need only one tablespoon of sugar to balance out the one tablespoon of soy sauce. If you really wish, you can halve the amount for both sugar and soy sauce.

Place vegetables, Seasoning Mix and water in container. Close lid tightly. Shake until vegetables are evenly coated with seasoning.

Loosen lid to vent. Place in microwave.

Microwave on HIGH 5 minutes or until tender. Let stand in microwave 2 minutes. Carefully remove cover. Stir before serving.
