In saucepan of boiling water, blanch green beans for 2 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Set aside.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, whisk together black bean sauce, cornstarch, oyster sauce and sugar; set aside.

In wok or large skillet, heat oil over high heat; stir-fry beef until no longer pink, about 4 minutes.

Add onion, garlic and chili; stir-fry until onion is softened, about 3 minutes.

Add green beans and sauce mixture; stir-fry until beans are tender-crisp, about 3 minutes, adding up to 2 tbsp (25 mL) water to prevent sticking, if necessary. Stir in coriander.
