    Beautiful BC's Note:

    This is a very tasty family favourite that I've slightly modified from the original which came from a great cookbook called Thai Cooking & More. NOTE: Just so there's no confusion - this recipe uses a prepared Chinese Black Bean Sauce - NOT your regular black beans. This can be found with the ethnic foods at your local grocer - usually where you find soy sauce etc. This is also where you'll find the hot chili paste - my preference is Sombel Oelek NOTE#2 - prep time includes 30 minute marinating time
