1/2 pound yard-long beans
8 ounces fresh udon or fresh Shanghai (about 1/4 in. thick) noodles
2 tablespoons salad oil
2 tablespoons sesame seed
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced fresh red jalapeño or serrano chili (or 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon hot chili flakes)
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar

1. In a 5- to 6-quart pan over high heat, bring about 3 quarts water to a boil.

2. Meanwhile, trim stem ends from 1/2 pound yard-long beans; rinse beans.

Stir, remove from heat, and let cool about 2 minutes.
