Spicy Green Beans

I am addicted to soy sauce so I just made this recipe up to serve as a side with asian dishes. Also goes well with steak!

To perform this cooking task successfully:
1 medium skillet
1 mixing spoon (whatever you use to stir stuff in your skillet)
1 small mixing bowl (this is just to combine the sauce ingredient, I sometimes just use a tupperware when none of my dishes are clean!)
Tbsp and tsp measuring spoons
1 knife

For the beany goodness:
1 package frozen green beans (I use frozen because it's quicker, but you can certainly use fresh ones, it will just take a little longer to cook)
1 Tbsp sesame seed oil
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp rice wine vinegar
2 tsp sugar
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 green onion minced
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp red pepper flakes

Combine soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, garlic, green onion, black pepper, and red pepper flakes (use less of these if you don't want it too spicy). give it a little stir and allow it to sit while you heat up the skillet. Add the sesame oil to the cold skillet and heat on medium high. Once the oil is heated add the frozen green beans. Toss and coat in oil. Add the sauce. Cook until green beans are warmed through.
