    Sharon123's Note:

    Placing this here for safekeeping! I have had a wonderful Szechuan Eggplant at a Chinese restaurant in town that I just love, but unfortunately, they stopped making it! They told me they used black bean sauce when making it, but alas, I could not find any locally. So I will be trying this to recreate the dish. I have changed it slightly. A few tablespoons of this sauce paired with meats, seafood, fresh vegetables, or rice, pasta, etc. will create a delicious meal in minutes!

    1. 1
      In a large skillet, heat the sherry, vinegar, lime juice. Add the garlic and ginger, and cook over medium high heat for 1 minute. Stir in the fish sauce, sugar, chili sauce, black beans, and vegetable broth.
    2. 2
      Bring the sauce to a boil: reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Whisk in the dissolved cornstarch, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens slightly.
    3. 3
      This can be made ahead and refirgerated for up to 1 week. Enjoy!

      Thanks Sharon 123 as always you have great recipes! I had to adjust a few things based on what I had on hand, but this was great with some tofu and a bunch of bok choy and broccoli! Thanks

      Dish-licking yummy! This is totally different from traditional black bean sauce I made in my Chinese cooking classes or the one I have posted (see Authentic Black Bean Chicken). It is much tangier due to the red wine vinegar, chili sauce and fresh lime juice.
