This is a nice, spicy side dish. I used fresh green beans as well, steamed a bit beforehand (otherwise, they brown too much before they are cooked through.) We used a bit more garlic because we like lots of garlic. I was tempted to leave off the sugar at the end, but sprinkled some on and it added a nice touch. The sesame seeds on top completed the dish. It's so easy, I'll definitely make it again.

I tried the recipe as written and enjoyed them. The second time, I steamed fresh green beans then seared them in a skillet. I then followed the recipe but subbed brown sugar for the honey because I didn't have honey on hand. They were delicious.

I used fresh green beans but steamed them a little before I followed the recipe

I agree with the description. Excellent recipe! I prepared it in the microwave using canned French cut green beans, and I substituted Splenda for the sugar.
