Black Bean Sauce Recipe



Black Bean Sauce RecipeTo date I have focussed largely on indian food – the exciting array of spices and sauces used in these recipe really do it for me. My mission is now to master the art of Chinese cooking. I’m going to kick off with black bean sauce. We all need to begin somewhere – a takeaway menu was put through our door today so I’ve started looking over it and discovered something that I guess is pretty obvious:- many of these dishes use exactly the same basic ingredients and just change the meat.

A prominent recipe (the one we’re dealing with today) is <something> in black bean sauce.

Looking through the menu, here is a sample of the dishes on offer:-

  • Barbecue Spare Ribes with Green Pepper & Black Bean Sauce
  • Squid and Green Pepper in Black Bean Sauce
  • Roast duck Green Pepper in Black Bean Sauce
  • Chicken with Green Pepper in Black Bean Sauce
  • Fillet Steak in Black Bean Sauce
  • Roast Pork  with Green Pepper in Black Bean Sauce
  • Lamb with Green Pepper in Black Bean Sauce
  • Mixed Vegetables (I bet there’s Green Pepper in there somewhere!) in Black Bean Sauce
  • Beancurd with Green Pepper in Black Bean Sauce

Sooooo… it looks to me like we can make up a fat batch of Black bean sauce, add some green pepper, flavouring and duck, chicken or whatever you fancy and voila! A yummy meal in seconds.

Ingredients for Black Bean Sauce:-

  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1½ tbsp sherry or saki
  • 1 tsp sugar (or sucralose)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp groundnut oil
  • 2 tsp cornflour (or soy flour)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 thumb of ginger
  • 3 tbsp black beans

Method for Black Bean Sauce

  • Put everything in a blender and whiz it to death
  • That’s it!!! (easy huh????)
