  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 pound green beans, ends trimmed and cut into 2-inch lengths
  • 1/2 pound cremini mushrooms, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 red onion, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • sesame seeds


  • In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, water, and sesame oil. Add sugar, cornstarch, and pepper and stir until blended. Set aside.
  • Over high heat, heat a wide, heavy-bottomed pan or wok. Add canola oil and swirl to coat bottom and sides of the pan. Heat until hot but not smoking.
  • Add green beans and spread in a single layer on the bottom of the pan. Stir-fry for about 2 to 4 minutes or until half done.
  • Add mushrooms, onions, and garlic. Cook, stirring regularly until vegetables are tender yet crisp.
  • Stir sauce mixture to redistribute cornstarch and add to pan. Cook, stirring regularly until thickened.
  • Transfer to serving plate and garnish with sesame seeds if desired. Serve hot.


  • Cut the green beans into uniform lengths and the mushrooms in a uniform thickness to ensure even cooking.
  • Drain the vegetables well and pat dry to ensure they sear nicely and not cook in their steam.
