China Live Signature Chili Bean Sauce $15.95

Beans are a Chinese cooking staple.

Although many people don’t commonly associate legumes other than peanuts with certain styles of Chinese cooking, fava beans, soybeans and black soybeans are used commonly across regional cuisines to impart distinct flavor, umami and body to dishes. Fava beans, or broad beans, are particularly common in the cuisines of northeast China. They’re used as the base for sauces—like doubanjiang—or to make noodles. Fermenting or toasting beans is an extra step that can amplify the flavors of a bean-based sauce, making it more robust, pungent or mildly sweet.

Not sure how you’d use it?

We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.

HOW TO USE

A little bit of this sauce goes a long way. Use this chili bean sauce in our recipe for Spicy Broccolini with Seared Tofu and Sesame Oil (Vegetables), which calls for doubanjiang as an ingredient. Try replacing the chili flakes in our Sweet-and-Spicy Ginger Green Beans and Skillet-Charred Brussel Sprouts with Garlic, Anchovy and Chili with the sauce.
