- 1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
- 1 1/2 tablespoons oriental sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
- 1/3 cup Drunken Garlic Black Bean Sauce
Blanch green beans in large pot of boiling water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain. Transfer green beans to large bowl of ice water to cool. Drain again. Pat green beans dry. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Wrap green beans in paper towels and enclose in resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate.)
Heat oil in heavy large wok or nonstick skillet over high heat. Add green beans and stir-fry until heated through,about 2 minutes. Add Drunken Garlic Black Bean sauce. Stir-fry until sauce reduces slightly and loosely coats green beans, about 2 minutes longer. Add sesame seeds and toss to coat.
Transfer green bean mixture to bowl and serve.
