If you don’t feel like smoking up your kitchen by charring the beans on the stovetop, try grilling or just blanching them instead.

4 servings


    • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 2 Tbsp. white miso
    • 1/2 serrano chile, finely grated
    • 1 1/2" piece ginger, peeled, finely grated
    • 12 oz. Romano, wax, and/or green beans
    • 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
    • Lime wedges and toasted sesame seeds (for serving)


    1. Mix butter, miso, chile, and ginger in a small bowl until smooth.
    2. Heat a large skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium-high. Toss beans with oil in a medium bowl, then transfer to skillet and cook, tossing occasionally, until charred in spots and crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.
    3. Spread miso butter on a platter. Arrange beans over; their residual heat will melt the butter into a saucy dressing. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and squeeze some lime wedges over.
