1 tablespoon wok or vegetable oil, 1 turn of the pan in a slow stream

1 teaspoon dark sesame oil, several drops or a drizzle

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (a handful)

Coarse salt

Directions

  1. Steam green beans covered in 1/2-inch boiling water for 2 minutes. Transfer beans to a colander and run under cold water. Drain well.
  2. Heat a wok shaped skillet or large nonstick frying pan over high heat. Go once-around-the-pan with wok or vegetable oil, add several drops sesame oil, and crushed pepper flakes. The pan will smoke. Add beans and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add sesame seeds and coarse salt and toss to coat beans evenly.
