Recipe: Beef in Black Bean Sauce

How's everyone doing at home? We've been good - stayed home, played board games, watched TV and movies, and enjoyed lots of homecooked meals.

One of the dishes we made earlier this week is this Beef in Black Bean Sauce. I actually first ate this dish in the UK, when I used to work in a Chinese takeaway and the lady boss would cook this for me to take home with me.

To make this dish, you will need salted black soy beans which you can find easily in the supermarkets in jars. I used rump steak, which is fairly tender and flavorful - slice it thinly so it cooks quickly in the hot wok. The beef is first marinated, and then stir fried along with green pepper and onions. For those who do not eat beef, you may also substitute with chicken breast.

Stay positive guys and happy cooking!
