Express Black Bean & Soy Bean Paste Chicken Stir-Fry

=&0=&

This dish is similar to my preserved black bean chicken dish, but it should be considered the simplified version. Easier and quicker.

I cooked it this way to save some time and effort, actually. Since this is just a resemblance dish for settling our dinner with a quicker fix after being worn out by all my festivities since last year end, I didn’t thought of posting this, actually… But, to my surprise, papa said this version yields even better taste than my original version. The version which I’ve learned from the tv cooking program of the celebrity chef (laugh)!

Anyway, in case you are like me, needing a quick fixed dinner, this is what you might want to consider for your purpose. :) More

Steamed Fish Tail with Whole Black Bean (豆豉蒸鱼尾)

Stir-fried Bitter Gourd with Spicy Black Bean

“Delicious bitter gourd that does not really taste bitter.”

Bitter gourd aka bitter melon is well-known with its rich nutritional properties. It is an excellent source of vitamins B1, B2, and B3, C, magnesium, folic acid, zinc, phosphorus, manganese, iron, beta-carotene, calcium and potassium. It has high dietary fiber and very low in calorie. Many Chinese families also believe in its cooling effect to reduce ‘heatiness’ in the body. However, not many take bitter gourd, despite all the health benefits it has. As its name implies, this vegetable tastes bitter!

However, you may limit its bitterness to the minimal, using my choosing method. I loved to cook this dish and I had to cook it deliciously and less bitterness so that my family would enjoy eating it. More
