An unusual and popular way to serve green beans.

2 pounds green beans, trimmed
4 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoon soy sauce
4 teaspoons Thai chili-garlic sauce
6 tablespoons water
4 teaspoons cornstarch
2 scallions chopped
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Place beans in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with water. Steam for about 5 minutes on high speed; drain well. In a large wok, place hoisin sauce, soy sauce and chili-garlic sauce. Stir together water and cornstarch until cornstarch dissolves and stir into mixture in wok. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to simmer and stir in beans. Cook until thoroughly coated – about 4 minutes. Toss in scallions and cook briefly. Remove from heat and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
