½ pound beef, flank steak (london broil)
1 tablespoon black beans, fermented
2 cloves garlic
2 slices ginger root
fresh, minced
1 pound rice noodles
3 tablespoons peanut oil
1 onions
cut into 8 wedges
1 green bell peppers
seeded and cut into one inch cubes, or sugar snap pea, or bok choy, or a combination
1 pinch white pepper
1 pinch sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce, tamari
2 teaspoons soy sauce, dark
2 teaspoons rice wine

½ teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon sesame oil
or peanut oil


CUT THE BEEF into ¼ inch thick by 1½-inch long by ½-inch wide slices; put into a bowl and toss with the beef marinade.

Set aside.

Cover the black beans with water until soft, about 5 minutes.

Drain and rinse off excess salt with water.

Place in a small bowl and mash together garlic and ginger into a coarse paste; set aside.

Separate the strands of rice noodles.

Set aside. Over high heat, preheat the wok until hot.

Add half the oil and swirl it to coat the sides.

When the oil is hot, add the beef; toss until the beef loses its redness, about 30-to-45 seconds.

Remove to a bowl; set aside.

Add the remaining oil to the wok. While the oil is warming add the black bean mixture; stir-fry until fragrant, about 10 seconds.

Over high heat, add the onions and peppers; stir-fry until they begin to soften but are still crisp about 1 minute.

Add the rice noodles; stir-fry to coat the strands with seasoned oil, for about 30 seconds.

Add the white pepper, sugar, and soy sauce; toss until evenly distributed. Return the beef; toss a few turns to mix in.

Transfer to a serving platter.

Serve immediately.

The ingredient list includes "2 cloves, minced." (How do you mince a clove??) But the directions say to "mash the garlic and ginger into a paste." Aha! (There is no mention of garlic in the ingredient list.) Perhaps you might revise the ingredient list.
