How Do You Make Black Bean Sauce?
You can probably purchase black bean sauce in your local Asian supermarket, but if you want the best and freshest black bean sauce, make it yourself. It requires only a few ingredients, takes only minutes to put together, and the result is a delicious sauce for vegetables, fish or poultry. Adjust the spices to suit your tastes, from a mildly tangy to smokin’ hot. Heat a wok or skillet over high heat and add the peanut oil. When the peanut oil is hot, add the peanut oil, garlic and the beans. Stir fry the mixture quickly for about 10 seconds. Add the soy sauce, grated orange rind, grated ginger root, oregano, cumin, red pepper flakes and rice vinegar and cook the mixture until the sauce thickens, about a minute.
