Cold Stirred Lima Beans

2 tablespoons salad oil
1 package (10 oz.) frozen baby lima beans, thawed
1/2 cup diced bamboo shoots
1/2 cup chicken broth or canned
2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Heat a wok or wide frying pan over high heat. When pan is hot, add oil. When oil is hot, add lima beans and bamboo shoots. Stir-fry for 1 minute.

Add chicken broth, sugar, and salt. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until beans are crisp-tender (about 5 minutes).

Remove cover and continue cooking until all liquid evaporates. Stir in sesame oil. Cool, cover, and chill.
