Very good. I used extra-virgin olive oil and added some sesame oil to enhance the sesame flavor. It was to our desired tenderness after 5 minutes. Threw in some minced garlic because we love garlic! Thanks for posting.

The fresh beans cooked in 5 minutes, adding the sesame seeds the last 1 minute of stir frying to lightly brown. A small amount of toasted sesame oil added some flavor depth. Was a delicious accompaniment to Crab Cakes (Can Be OAMC) especially the extra sauce drizzled over plain brown rice!

These fresh, Japanese style beans went down very well this morning (yes, for breakfast!). I really enjoy crunchy fresh beans so didn't over cook them. The soy sauce adds a nice touch but I adore the flavor of sesame oil in Asian cooking. Made for ZWT6 - Countries of Asia challenge (Japan). Thanks for posting!

This was a good recipe, but a little plain for a 5 star. I had higher hopes for this recipe, sorry.:( I really did like the brown/crisp beans (I used a combo of waxed and green). Thought it could use some garlic, or some kind of additional seasoning. I really love sesame oil, but it just needed something extra. Also made for ZWT 6.

This made a great side dish for a rich entree. I made enough for two and used frozen french cut green beans in place of the fresh as these were a last minute inclusion to our meal. A nice change from plain beans. Thanks for sharing Charlotte! Made by an Unruly under the Influence for ZWT6

Simple and tasty green bean recipe! I just love the flavor toasted sesame seeds add to vegetables. Used the low-sodium soy sauce. Made for a Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens, ZWT6.

LOVED these green beans! I've been trying to find a recipe that is similar to the green beans they serve in one of my favorite restaurants and THIS is the one! They are wonderful I used black sesame seeds and some fresh ginger, and cooked over a medium high heat for a few minutes and then covered and let them cook about 2 more minutes. They were perfectly crunchy and highly seasoned! ZWT4 family picks
