Pork in Black Bean Sauce with Green Peppers

Pork goes really well with black beans, the salty and pungent flavour of which is so distinctively southern Chinese.

Based on a recipe by Ken Hom, but I wanted to add spice to this dish; ginger, garlic and chilli came to mind and so I came up with this.

  1. Black bean sauce has to be my favorite Chinese sauce! It's hard to find in the Americanized Chinese restaurants here. Looks great as always Jan!

  8. I was planning to cook pork in black bean sauce and didn't know hot to, so thanks for your recipe! I don't have soya sauce, so hope Worcestershire sauce works as substitute.

  10. I had some larger chunks of pork and little time so I improvised on this theme. Didn't have time to marinade but I immersed the pork in the marinade then cooked it in the oven for 30 mins until cooked. I added the pork with its marinade to the wok after the onion/chilli etc had been cooking for a short while. I didn't have any hoisin sauce and I didn't use a substitute as I reckoned there was plenty of flavour from everything else. I also used bottled supermarket black bean sauce, red pepper instead of green, and added tenderstem broccoli. The result? Amazing! The best pork stir fry ever. The sauce was fabulous. Adding some chicken stock to loosen it all up was great. I also think having the marinade in the sauce helped as the marinade was sticky from the oven and because there was cornflour in the marinade. Excellent recipe (even if I did riff on the them...). Essential to use fresh ginger.
