Chinese Cooking Class with Uncle Woody! Part 5: Stir-Fried Green Beans and Tofu
by Sarah on January 14, 2010
Here we are, at the end of the current semester of Chinese Cooking with Uncle Woody. Our last dish is going to be a simple, simple vegetable but one that you’ll want to make all the time, whether you’re having a Chinese banquet or not. Stir-fried green beans and tofu with black bean sauce and sesame seeds.
We blanched the beans, to keep them green but also to make sure they’re cooked all the way through. Cube the tofu. Toss them all in a hot wok with a Tbsp of peanut oil.
When the beans are cooked to your liking, and hopefully have some nice charred spots, add in some prepared black bean sauce. This is a good brand. Stir fry another quick minute, then add some sesame seeds for a little flavor and texture.
