I used only half of the soy sauce initially as I thought the full amount might be too salty (even using reduced sodium soy sauce). I did add a bit more as I felt additional flavor was needed. ...

Great recipe!!! Very tasty. I followed recipe exactly as written. I will definitely make this again,

followed to the letter. It is so easy and sooo very good!

I thought this was great! I didn't have sesame seeds but I had sunflower seeds so I used them instead.

Stir fried green beans 3-5 mins, then added garlic, green onion, chili-garlic paste, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, water and chili flakes. Cooked until thick.

The salt was overpowering for both myself and my wife. I did use light soy sauce but if I try this again I would consider using Tamari instead of soy sauce. Have to experiment a bit..
