Why we like it

Full disclosure: L’OCA Quality Market offers Canada’s most comprehensive selection of chef-inspired, chef-prepared foods, meals, and sauces—including our scratch-made Fermented Black Bean & Ginger Sauce.

At the time we’re writing this, we’re not quite ready to declassify the formula for this sauce.

And even though it perfectly complements dishes like beef and broccoli, crispy tofu or salmon, and will always be available on our shelves, have fun customizing your next stir fry with teriyaki, hoisin, ginger, sesame, or Szechuan sauce.

Preparation Notes

Stir-frying happens quickly!

Before you even turn on the stove, make sure to properly set up your mise en place.

That involves gathering, measuring, preparing, and having all your ingredients ready to go.

For the beef, we recommend placing it in the freezer for 30-45 minutes until it is partially firm. After that, use a sharp knife to slice it into thin strips against the grain of the steak.
