Wow, were these good. I've been waiting to try them when my dh is away. Love the flavor bomb from the ginger and the sesame. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will enjoy often. I took these to my sil's for dinner and they loved them also. Thanks for making me look good. Sorry no photo I forgot. I will take one next time I make these. Made for Alphabet tag.

I love green beans be it plain or buttered so no surprise that I enjoyed this lovely vegetable side. I was almost hesitant when it came to adding the full amount of ginger but it made for that extra zing. I can't wait to make this with my fresh garden beans.

Amazing! For such an easy side dish, this was so, so good! I love green beans even plain with no salt or butter - but this recipe is one I'll make over and over.! Thanks for posting this recipe - it will be in my regular veggie rotation!!!

This is a lovely side dish. They have a nice flavor and the ginger does grab one's attention. I also like the use of chicken broth rather than water. For the preference of my diners I cooked the green beans longer to soften and used red pepper flakes instead of black pepper. I served these with your Orange Teriyaki Pork and rice noodles.

Very tasty change from our usual steamed green beans. Will be making this easy side again.
