Episode 101: Black Bean and Garlic Sauce
Ming Tsai kicks off his brand-new series with a trip to Boston's Chinatown to demystify fermented black bean and garlic sauce — a favorite of Chinese cooking. Back in the studio, Ming will prepare Wok-stirred Clams and Black Beans, Wok-stirred Beef with Eggplant and Black Beans, Black Bean Pork and Tofu, and a Black Bean Aioli. Guest chef Iris Tsai — Ming's mom! — joins him to make Sizzling Fried Red Snapper with this versatile and simple master sauce.
