I realize that 5 stars is an awfully high rating for such a simple dish. But honestly, I end up eating a pound of green beans every time I make them this way. They end up so tender, and I love the simple flavor created by the sesame seeds and by steaming them in the broth. Depending on what I'm serving them with, I decide whether or not to include the red pepper sauce. You can always serve it on the side if you're not sure how spicy you want them. Enjoy!
