Chilled Lima Beans

1 pk (10 oz) large frozen lima beans
2 tb Oil
3/4 ts Salt
1 tb Sugar
1/2 c Chicken stock
2 Points of a star anise


Remove the beans and defrost long enough to separate them.

Heat a skillet over high heat until hot; add the oil, swirl, and heat for 30 seconds. Scatter in the beans and stir-fry briskly for 30 seconds until the beans brighten into an icy green. Sprinkle in the salt and sugar and stir rapidly for 30 seconds longer. Add stock and anise, even out the beans, turn heat to medium low to maintain a strong simmer. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes.

Uncover, turn heat high and stir while cooking rapidly for 30 seconds; liquid will be gone. Sprinkle with sesame oil, stir to coat and pour into a serving dish. Cover and refrigerate.
