I think the key to this dish is to make your own black bean sauce. It's not as sloppy as the jarred stuff. I made my own sauce, and it was delicious. I'll definitely be making it again :o)

Had I photoed it it would have looked a bit 'pot noodle' like. It was a bland, it was grey (pork and blackbean in the main), I added fresh vegetables for texture whilst stirfrying (carrots, onions and green pepper) but nothing could really rescue or revitalise this swamp of pap. My rice noodles were very thin (vermicelli) but not hugely impactful on taste, the problem is flavour. Never make again, threw rather than chilled the many leftovers. Avoid this one is my tip!

We enjoyed this. I made my own black bean sauce which was surprisingly easy and used stir fry veg and fine egg noodles

Incredibly disappointing - won't be making this recipe again. Should have realised as it's using a jar of ready made sauce - I used an expensive one but it was still a bowl of mushy meat all tasting the same. Needed more veg too for variety of texture and taste. Lots of other MUCH nicer stir fries to try on this site.

I agree about the veg. It was a nice taste but it would be better with something a bit substantial - peppers, baby corn. Without it, it is a bit mushy.
