It's taken a while to like this product, but I am glad I stuck to this as the meals we can have with this sauce are incredible all one that one ingredient.
This, like most ingredients from BLUE DRAGON, is packed with flavor. We have tried a number of brand regarding this sauce and yet again find that BLUE DRAGON is consistently the best.
We normally add this to noodles, beef, spring onions, ginger, pepper and it transforms the dishes in minutes. This is so easy to make after a hard day at work you can literally throw everything into the wok and once the beef is cooked through and the vegetables softened adding a leaf of basil in at the end, it brings the dish together.
This is made with a heavy cocktail of ingredients:
RICE WINE VINEGAR
DARK SOYA SAUCE
This also is ideal for anyone who needs a vegetarian sauce, BLUE DRAGON products are well worth checking out for this aspect alone. They highlight products on their website if you need confirmation about what is suitable for you.
This is available now in sachets (120g) which makes it easy to measure out or if making bigger dishes for more people they have this available jars (200g) and reasonably price. I normally get this locally or at Sainsbury's for 65p for a sachet 1.50 for the jar.
I don't use this as much as the fish sauce, but this is a mush have in our cupboard now.
I am a big lover of black bean sauce, especially in a chinese chicken and vegetable dish with some egg fried rice, but we all know how much a chinese take away or restaurant can cost these days, so I thought I would try to make my own black bean sauce and chicken dish, in the hope it would some what resemble the taste you get from a chinese take away.
I bought a Blue Dragon sauce from Morrisons as it was on offer at the time and I thought if I didn't like it, then it wouldn't be such a waste as it was cheaper than the other sauces on offer. I took it home and prepared to cook my first home made chinese meal ever.
I am happy to say that the meal turned out great, and my family loved it too. The sauce tasted just like the sauce used by my local chinese take away and my family all agreed, it really did taste like it came from the take away, instead of from my kitchen! It was easy to use as well, after frying up the chicken and vegetables, just pour in the jar of sauce and stiry fry for 2 minutes, done. Easy as anything to make, especially when teamed with Uncle Bens Express Egg Fried Rice lol.
This jar costs around a £1 to buy in most supermarkets, and is a bargain for such a great meal, especially when you compare it to the cost of buying a chinese take away or eating in a chinese resturaunt. It comes in a glass jar, with a screw top lid and a blue label which has a picture of some chinese food on the front, and all cooking instructions on the back along with some nutrional information and some information about the Blue Dragon Company.
I recommend this sauce as much as I possibly can, it really is as good as a chinese meal cooked in a restaurant.
