This Black Bean and Beef Vegetable Stir Fry is one of my favorite asian dishes, next to chow mein that is. I can’t believe I have not done a chow mein dish yet for you guys! I will get on to that very soon, so stay tuned. I used to order this dish every time from our local chinese restaurant, now I make it myself and save myself a ton of money doing so.
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.
This dish can be made with shrimp or chicken too which is also amazing. I had to do this dish right, so I tried it a couple dozen recipes from many sources to come up with my favorite version. It has all the flavors you have come to know and love in a black bean sauce, and goes great served over rice.
Start by cooking your rice, because the rest takes less than 15 minutes. I like to use a mini rice cooker, just set it and forget it. Then you will want to start with chopping the vegetables first, then setting them aside. Cut your steak into slices and place in a large frying pan or wok, sauteing till the beef is no longer pink. 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.
I hope you give it a try. There really isn’t much too it!
I don’t know about you but this vegetable mixture is perfect, some people like to add snow peas, and other veggies but that is not very authentic if you ask me. This is one of my favorite dishes and healthy too!
Chopped Red and Green Peppers, along with an onion and green onions.
Fry the vegetables for about 2 minutes then add in the ginger and garlic and fry a couple minutes more.
Add back in the pre-sauteed beef and then pour in the chicken/black bean sauce mixture.
