  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add green beans and cook uncovered until bright green, about 3 minutes. Drain in a colander and immediately immerse in ice water for several minutes to stop the cooking process. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Mix mustard powder and cold water together in a small bowl to make a paste. Stir in vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, sugar, and salt.
  3. Pour mustard paste mixture over green beans; toss to coat. Chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.

This was okay. I used cider vinegar instead of white, and doubled the amount. This tasted like too much sodium to me, so I added a 1/2 tsp of sambal oelek to give it a flavor other than salt.

I used half the green beans and left the rest of the ingredients the same for an extra saucy green beans and these turned out excellent! I highly recommend this recipe!
