  • 2 tbsps water
  • 4 tbsps dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

Instructions
 

  • #Black beans are a specialty of Cantonese cooking and give a pungent, salty taste to stir-fried dishes.# Core tomatoes and cut them into 16 wedges. Crush the black beans, add the water and set aside.
  • Combine soy sauce, cornstarch, sherry, sugar and meat in a bowl and set aside.
  • Cut pepper into 1/2-inch diagonal pieces. Heat the wok and add the oil. When hot, stir-fry the green pepper pieces for about 1 minute and remove.
  • Add the meat and the soy sauce mixture to the wok and stir-fry for about 2 minutes. Add the soaked black beans and the stock. Bring to the boil and allow to thicken slightly.
  • Return the peppers to the wok and add the tomatoes and pepper. Heat through for 1 minute and serve immediately. #TIME: Preparation takes about 25 minutes, cooking takes about 5 minutes.# #SERVING IDEA: Serve with plain boiled rice.# #WATCHPOINT: Do not add the tomatoes too early or stir the mixture too vigorously once they are added or they will fall apart.# #VARIATION: Substitute snow peas for the green peppers in the recipe. Mushrooms may also be added and cooked with the pepper or snow peas.#
