    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 lb fresh string bean
    • 2 tbsp.saikyo miso (light bean paste)
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • 1 tablespoon sake
    • 2 tablespoons white sesame seeds


    1. 1
      Wash and trim the beans. Bring salted water to a rapid boil and cook the beans in it for 3-4 minutes. They should still be bright green and crisp. Drain them and let them cool naturally before cutting them into one-inch lengths.
    2. 2
      Mix the bean paste, sugar, and sake together in a small saucepan. Heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the sugar has melted and the sauce is satiny. Remove from the heat and let cool while preparing the sesame seeds.
    3. 3
      In a heavy skillet, dry roast the seeds over medium heat, then transfer them while still warm to a suribachi (Japanese grinding mortar) and grind them to a smooth paste. If using a blender or food processor you will need to double or tripe the batch to have enough volume to engage the blades. Excess can be refrigerated in a tightly sealed jar.
    4. 4
      Add the bean paste sauce to the sesame paste and blend thoroughly to make a thick, smooth sauce.
    5. 5
      Toss the beans in the sauce lightly just before serving. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled.
