In a medium skillet over medium high heat, heat the sesame oil and add the red pepper and stir in hot oil for approx 2 minutes - add garlic and stir another minute. Next, add in the blanched green beans and toss. Pour in oyster & soy sauce and season with salt and pepper and continue to toss beans to coat and heat them through - about 4 to 5 minutes.
Serve hot alongside your favorite meat or fish and other side dish :-) I promise the yum-factor on these beans is WAY high!
