DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the green beans in a pot of boiling salted water until JUST crisp-tender (about 3 minutes) plunge into an ice water bath to cool completely.
  • Drain well and pat the beans dry using paper towels.
  • Heat sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat; add in garlic and chili flakes (if using) stir-fry 1 minute.
  • Add in beans and stir-fry for about 2 minutes.
  • Add in soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar and black pepper; cook until the sauce reduces slightly and coats the beans (about 1-1/2-2 minutes longer).
  • If you want a thick sauce mix a small amount of cornstarch with a small amount of cold water and add in towards the end.
  • Add in the almonds or sesame seeds; toss to coat and transfer to a bowl.
