John made a really good dinner last night of chicken katsu and green beans. He sort of improvised the katsu, so I don’t have a great recipe to share (beyond making a panko-crusted chicken cutlet and using this sauce recipe as a guide). But he used this recipe for the green beans, which were a big hit.
1/2 lb green beans
1 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp roasted sesame seeds, ground
roasted sesame seeds for garnish
Cook green beans in boiling water for 2-3 minutes.
Cut cooked green beans into 2″ long pieces.
Grind sesame seeds, and mix with soy sauce and sugar in a bowl.
Mix sauce and green beans.
Sprinkle sesame seeds.
