Soy - And - Sesame - Seed Dressing With String Beans
(Goma Joyu - Ae)
What You Need:
  • 1 pound string beans, or 1 pound fresh or defrosted frozen snow peas
  • Salt
  • 1 cup niban dashi
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • MSG
  • 2 teaspoons sake (rice wine)
  • ¼ teaspoon Japanese all-purpose soy sauce

  • ½ cup white sesame seeds, warmed and ground into a paste (see shira-ae)
  • 3 tablespoons sake (rice wine)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Japanese all-purpose soy sauce

  • How To Cook:
    1. Snip off and discard the ends of the green beans (or snow peas) and cut them into ½-inchlengths.

    2. Drop the beans into 2 cups of lightly salted boiling water, reduce the heat to moderate and cook briskly, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the beans are tender but still slightly resistant to the bite.

    3. Drain and run cold water over them to stop their cooking and set their color.

    4. In the same pan, combine the dashi, sugar, ¼ teaspoon of salt, a sprinkle of MSG, 2 teaspoons of sake and ¼ teaspoon of soy sauce.

    5. Bring to a boil over moderate heat, add the string beans (or snow peas) and return to the boil. Then remove the pan from the heat and cool to room temperature.

    1. Over high heat, heat 3 tablespoons of sake to lukewarm.

    2. Remove the pan from the heat and ignite the sake with a kitchen match, shaking the pan gently until the flame dies out.

    3. Pour the sake into a small bowl and cool to room temperature.

    4. Add the sake, 2 teaspoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce to the previously prepared sesame paste, and mix together thoroughly.

    1. Pour the sesame dressing into a large bowl, add the drained string beans or snow peas and toss together until the vegetables are thoroughly coated.

    2. Taste for seasoning and add more salt if necessary. Serve at room temperature in small bowls, as a first course, salad or part of a Japanese meal.
