Green Beans with Sesame Seeds

This recipe is adapted from Mark Robinson's book Izakaya: The Japanese Pub Cookbook, and it is both reasonably easy and delicious.

1 lb. green beans, trimmed and cut to 2 inch pieces

Sesame Sauce:
2 oz. Sesame seeds toasted
1 Tbsp. white sugar
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
3 Tbsp. sake

Blanch green beans until they are crisp tender (about 5 minutes).  Drain and put in water with ice cubes.  Then transfer to a bowl of Dashi stock with soy sauce to soak. 

Mortar and pestle the sesame seeds.  Once they are in a paste, add sugar, soy sauce and sake.  Drain the green beans and toss them with sauce.  Delicious!
