Black Bean Sauce Chicken With Vegetables

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by echo echo

I'm a fiend for black bean sauce so had to try this (tweaked slightly) when I saw it at the Uwajimaya website. Preparation time doesn't include time to cook rice (could also be served over noodles). I'm sure pork could substitute admirably for chicken.

I, too found this to be a bit bland. Flavour was OK, but if I didn't know there was black bean sauce included, I wouldn't have noticed that flavour in the recipe.
