      This was very good and easy to make. I used black bean paste and substituted chicken broth for personal preference. Made for the Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbooks Tag Game.

      This takes minutes and tastes as good, if not better than any Chinese Restraunt I've been too. You'll be surprised how easy this is to make. I used preserved black beans with ginger that come in a carboard cylinder carton. I also used water in place of the fish stock since I didn't have any on hand. I served it with Perfect Steamed Rice Every Time and some steamed asparagus. A very special dinner perfect for a weeknight. Thank you PAC Baby!
