Korean-Style Green Bean Side Dish

Making any vegetable taste like a Korean side dish is easy. The special ingredient that does the trick is sesame oil. Here's how I make green beans, Korean style:

2 cups green beans
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar
sprinkle of sesame seeds

Start by blanching the green beans - a.k.a. tossing them in boiling, salted water for 1 minute and then shocking them in ice water.
In a large pan, heat up the sesame oil and start to toast the garlic.

Add in the drained green beans and toss in the garlicky sesame oil.
Then sprinkle in the sugar.
Toss the green beans so that the sugar is evenly coating the green beans.
Lastly, add the sesame seeds and toss.
And serve!
