Japanese Style Green Beans

This is definitely Maxim's favorite way to make green beans. They go great with an Asian meal, or with any other meal for that matter. They are easy to do and are a welcome change to boiled green beans. You have to use the fresh or frozen beans or it won't work, trust us. --Mark


1 T canola oil
1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 pound fresh green beans, washed
1 T soy sauce
1 T toasted sesame seeds


Warm a large skillet or wok over medium heat. When the skillet is hot, pour in canola and sesame oils, then place whole green beans into the skillet. Stir the beans to coat with oil. Cook until the beans are bright green and slightly browned in spots, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in soy sauce; cover, and let sit about 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter, and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
