    Pets'R'us's Note:

    An inexpensive Chinese side dish. It is very quick to cook. I make this often, and sometimes add a chopped onion together with the cucumbers. The black beans I buy in an Asian supermarket, they are soya beans and salted. The recipe is from a Ken Hom cookbook

      This recipe was kind of bland by itself, but when added on top of homemade cheesy mashed potatoes, it was wonderful! I used the chili powder and only half of the sesame sauce that it called for and enjoyed it as a topping.

      I was looking for more dishes to use up cukes and tagged this in 123. I made as directed, using chili powder. 4 oz. water seemed like a lot and took a while to cook down. I didn't really care for these flavors. Sorry.

      Wow! I had also never fried (or even cooked) cucumbers before. It is a hit with the whole family. The sesame oil really added a nice taste to the dish.
