Heat non-stick skillet or wok over medium high heat. Wok needs to be very hot. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the hot pan. Add the beans and stir-fry 5-7 minutes until beans are tender crisp and a bit charred in spots. You may want to use a lid to "steam" the beans. Only leave it on for a moment, then continue to stir-fry the beans so the beans do not burn. But a little charring is okay - it's actually what you want.
Once the beans are just perfectly charred, but still crisp. Think al-dente. Add the sesame oil and roughly chopped garlic. Stir-fry for just a minute. Just until you smell the garlic. Remove from heat and sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Serve.
