Making this Black Bean Beef Stir fry is easy because it uses a pre-made sauce. There are a few pre-made black bean sauces on the market. My favorite is Lee Kum Kee Black Bean Garlic Sauce.
WHAT IS BLACK BEAN CHICKEN
It is a popular Chinese dish that has marinated chicken and vegetables all cooked together in fermented black bean sauce.
My dish here is made with red and green peppers, onions and chicken and then is tossed in a tasty black bean sauce.
I don’t know about you but this vegetable mixture is perfect, however you can add mushrooms, broccoli or snow peas if you like too!
HOW TO MAKE BLACK BEAN CHICKEN
You will want to start by cooking your rice, and then marinating your chicken.
Because the rest takes less than 15 minutes. I like to use a mini rice cooker, just set it and forget it.
- Start by marinating he chicken first in water and cornstarch mixture then fry it in oil over medium heat just enough to cook it.
- Next remove it from the wok/pan to sauté the vegetables in a black bean sauce mixture for a while.
- Just before adding back together with the cooked chicken sauté all together for a few minutes before serving. Pretty easy huh!
This delicious and authentic stir fry takes less than 30 minutes to make too, so what are you waiting for.
Follow along for a mouthwatering dinner that everyone is sure to love.
Then simply chop up all the vegetables and cook according to the instructions below.
The fantastic flavors of garlic and black bean sauce gives this dish it’s amazing flavor, and the cornstarch helps to thicken it up just right.
Even though there is garlic already in the black bean sauce, it is still nice to add 2 more cloves.
You will hardly notice it since the balance of the other flavors mellows it out nicely, so don’t be afraid to add more garlic.
