This is an excellent recipe! I happened to be out of sesame seeds when I made this (I thought they were in the cabinet) but they still came out delicious! I also made this while my air conditioner was broken so in order to keep my house from getting too hot I stir-fried the beans and sauce in a large pot. I cooked them until they were shriveled with dark spots. They were perfect!

Yum! I used toasted sesame oil and it gave the beans such a great flavor. Can't wait to make these again.

Very tasty and easy to put together. Next time I think I'll make with more sauce/spice and fewer green beans.

Very good. I omitted the pepper flakes to make it less hot. My husband who doesn't like green beans said, "Excellent asparagus!" :-) Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'll be making it again soon.

Everyone in my house loved this recipe!! I substituted the green beans with sparragus, and it turned out to be a great hit! Thanks!

I have to give this 4 stars, because hubby and I weren't in agreement on these. I loved them. Great flavor, a bit of kick, easy to make...very tasty. He thought they were just a bit too hot and wasn't sold on the ginger. But I will most likely make this again to suit his tastes better.

Oh boy! Are these ever easy to eat!! Gives a whole new perspective to green beans. Easy to make, easy to eat (I guess I've said that already). I used black sesame seeds, toasted, and enjoyed the complimentary flavours of ginger and garlic. Served with garlic toast and steak, and Barolo red wine. Thanks!
