"These Asian style green beans are sweet, sour, and if you prefer they can be slightly spicy, by adding the optional chile flakes."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place the green beans and water into a saucepan, and bring the water to a boil. Simmer the beans, uncovered, until they are almost tender and there is just a bit of water left, then stir in the red pepper strips. Simmer a little longer, until the beans are tender and all of the water has evaporated. Take the pan off the heat.

Step 2

While the beans cook, combine the soy sauce, cornstarch, dry mustard, honey, and if using, add the chile flakes (if you prefer and want a kick) in a small bowl. Place the green beans back over medium-high heat, and add the soy mixture. Toss until the vegetables are well coated, letting the sauce boil and thicken a bit.

Step 3

Take the pan off the heat. Drizzle in the sesame oil, and sprinkle on the toasted sesame seeds, if you are using them. Serve the beans immediately.
