Commercial black bean sauces vary greatly in strength and saltiness. Depending on the brand, you may want to use up to 1/4 cup (50 mL) for a full, richly flavoured sauce.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb green bean trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons black bean sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 12 oz regular ground beef
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 1 green chili thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander

Method

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.
