Sesame String Beans

Source: Martha Stewart Living, June 1998


  • 6 tablespoons Homemade Chicken Stock, or canned low-sodium chicken broth, skimmed of fat
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds string beans, stems trimmed
  • 3 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons unhulled sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Combine stock, soy sauce, and sherry in a small bowl, and set aside.

  2. Set a wok over high heat for 1 minute. Add oil; swirl to cover bottom and sides. Add string beans; cook, stirring and tossing, 5 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, and reserved stock mixture. Stir to combine; cook 1 minute. Cover; cook until beans are bright green but still crunchy, about 2 minutes. Remove cover; cook until no liquid remains. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired; serve.
