DIRECTIONS

  • 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.).
  • Toast sesame seeds: Heat the seeds in a dry pan over medium heat, or on a sheet in a 275ºF oven, until golden and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  • 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 toasted sesame seeds and toss to coat.
  • Transfer green bean mixture to bowl and serve.
