    1      pound         Fresh green beans

    2 1/2  tablespoons   vegetable oil
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
 
 The original recipe calls for rice wine; I substituted rice wine vinegar.
 
 Trim, wash and parboil beans for 2 minutes in rapidly boiling water.  Drain
 and rinse with cold water.
 
 Heat sesame seeds in a dry frying pan over moderate heat.  remove when
 seeds begin to pop.
 
 Combine the sugar, rice wine vinegar, white pepper, soy sauce, sesame oil
 and MSG for the seasoning mixture.
 
 Put a wok on very high heat. When very hot, add oil, salt and then the
 beans and stir-fry for 1 minute.  Add the seasoning mixture and stir-fry
 for another minute.  Add sesame seeds and blend well.  Transfer to a heated
 platter.
