I am from england so i hope the taste of blackbean suce is made the same where you guys are.
I want to attempt to make a black bean sauce the same taste as in my local chinese takeaway. I have tried using a supermarket brand and failed miserably. [:(]
The taste i can only describe is that the beans are very rich and makes me feel hot like when you eat curry. I was told that the reason this is, is because chilli oil is used. I have now purchased this and am yet to try it however before i do i have looked on the net to try and check i am not missing anything. Firstly when i buy a blackbean dish from takeaway there are whole blackbeans and loads of them in the dish, yet the supermarket brand there only seems to be a few bits of beans. Now i have read that rich tasting blackbeans you need fermented/salty black beans. Im a little confused and wondered if anyone knew what exactly i need to get that relly rich hot flavour. Would be extremely grateful for any advice given.
