This is an easy, quick side with a tangy Asian sauce. Throw in sesame seeds if you have them or substitute (like we did) with slivered almonds or another nut.
The essentials are just soy sauce, sesame oil and (of course) green beans.
2 TB soy sauce to 1 tsp sesame oil,
about a pound of green beans (we steamed 'em first),
and sesame seeds.
Stir it all together until the wet has sucked into the beans and the whole thing smells Asiany.
Reality Bite: Having spent two years living in Hong Kong, and speaking fluent Cantonese, I can totally say that.
