Good idea but the additions to the beans are all overkill in proportion. I used half of the sesame seeds and my beans were swimming in them. Same with the soy sauce and the amount of oil was totally unnecessary.
I didn't use nearly as much oil as the recipe called for and I used a mixture of part sesame and vegetable. I used just a sprinkling of sesame seeds rather than what the recipe stated. Just a couple of changes and this recipe is great.
These didn't look very good and they didn't taste very good either. The one posted picture of this recipe is extremely misleading - with all that soy sauce in this recipe trust me those green beans do not look like THIS recipe - unless the submitter forgot the soy sauce or chose not to use it. These beans are an unattractive shade of greeny-brown. And they basically taste like... green beans and soy sauce. One of the rare occasions Hubs and I not only agreed on a review of a recipe but we did so immediately without hesitation. The other issue is that there is no way you'd want to use the overload of sesame seeds called for. I used fresh green beans which theoretically should have made these even better but unfortunately this was a real miss for us.
I had had something similar to this several years ago and have wanted to try it. The toasted sesame seeds at the end really are needed (not necessarily that much but 2-3 tbsp). I also added sesame oil per some of the other suggestions but it didn't have the sesame taste I wanted until I added the toasted seeds. Agree with previous comments the soy causes the beans to brown a bit. I served it with Chinese Pork Chops and they paired nicely. Would make again.
These were very tasty and SO easy. I just eyeballed all the proportions - used a little oil (1/2 vegetable and 1/2 sesame) a liberal amount of soy sauce cooked as directed and then sprinkled liberally with sesame seeds. They were very popular and I will make them again with asian dishes.
