Ingredients

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 pound green beans, trimmed

1/3 cup coarsely chopped onion

¼ cup hoisin sauce (see Tip)

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon dark (Asian) sesame oil

1 tablespoon water, or as needed

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger

1 teaspoon sugar

¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, or 2 teaspoons Chinese chili paste with garlic, or to taste


Toasted sesame seeds for garnish


Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.


Add the beans and onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are crisp-tender and blackened in spots, about 5 to 10 minutes, depending on their thickness.


Meanwhile, whisk the remaining ingredients, except the sesame seeds, in a small bowl.


Stir in more water as needed until the sauce has a cake-batter consistency.


Set aside.


Remove the beans from the heat.


Add the sauce and stir until the beans are evenly coated.


Taste and adjust the seasoning.


Transfer the beans to a platter and garnish. Serve warm or at room temperature
