beefless tips & broccoli w/ black bean sauce

preparation

In a bowl add the soy sauce, Shao Hsing wine, sesame oil, agave, sambal and cornstarch. Toss to evenly coat the beefless tips and let marinate for 20 minutes or so.

Combine the sesame oil, soy sauce, Shao Hsing wine, agave, sambal and white pepper. Whisk to blend the ingredients. Lastly, add the cornstarch.

Thinly slice the onion and cut the broccoli into 1-to 2-inch pieces.

Mince the garlic and ginger and diagonally slice the Thai chilies. Have your fermented black beans and vegetable stock available for stir-frying.

Preheat a wok over high heat and then add the oil, immediately followed by half of the beefless tips. Separate the pieces to ensure they color evenly and let cook without touching them until they start to brown. Toss and continue to cook until the pieces are browned on all sides. Once done, remove the pieces and set aside while you cook the next batch. Add a bit more oil followed by the onions. Let cook for a minute or so, then add the garlic, ginger and black beans.

Cook for 30 seconds and then add the broccoli and chilies. Toss a few times, then add a bit of stock and toss again. Cover the wok for a few minutes to help steam the broccoli.

Next, add the beefless tips back to the wok and add just enough sauce to lightly coat the ingredients. Toss and continue to cook for another minute or so. Once done, remove from heat and serve immediately. If desired, serve with a side of brown rice and extra sambal.
