Broccoli in black bean sauce is great. Instead of buying jars of black bean sauce, we make the sauce with dried black beans. (Black bean sauce is also great with asparagus.)

Salted, fermented dried black beans are available in China Town. Note the low price on this bag of black beans. Black beans are perfect for making black bean sauce for stirfries, as well as black bean chili sauce.

We served the broccoli with rice and jaggery chicken. (It's also great with chicken (or pork) and peanuts in hoisin sauce.)
