    This was a recipe my mom taught me to make when I was 11. The two sauces are by Lee Kum Kee, and are 'Black Bean Sauce' and 'Minced Ginger & Shallot Sauce'. I made this in a Master Chef competition at my old school, and came second, although I was the clear public favourite :) Anyway, it's delicious, so try it out!

      Yum! This was a delicious recipe! I couldn't find 'Lee Kum Kee' brand in my region, so I used an alternative brand and it worked well. I kept to the recipe but added one cup of organic black beans (which is normally hard to find) and it made a complete meal. Thanks Jaxies for a great recipe.
