Editor’s Note: Black Bean Sauce is an essential condiment for anyone who loves making authentic Chinese food at home. This black bean sauce recipe is made from a combination of broth, black beans, rice wine, and green onions. The black bean mixture is combined with garlic and ginger that has been sauteed in oil. Cornstarch helps to thicken the sauce. This homemade black bean sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. It can be used in stir-fries or tossed with noodles for a simple but flavorful mean. As this bean sauce is so easy to make and includes a number of ingredients you likely already have on hand, you’ll want to find multiple recipes that use it. You can start with this recipe for Steamed Tofu with Black Bean Sauce.
Salted black beans might not be the most attractive ingredient in your kitchen, but they deliver a classic sauce. As this was one of my mother’s favorite sauces, every time I smell black bean sauce, it brings me back to my old family kitchen in China.
