Crushed Yellow Bean Sauce 450g


Crushed yellow bean sauce is made from fermented soy beans, mixed with salt and wheat flour into an authentic paste. The sweet-salty sauce is actually brown in colour, but takes its name from the yellow huángdòu beans it’s made from. Crushed yellow bean sauce is a versatile ingredient, most often found in north-eastern Chinese dishes, such as the regional specialty: ‘zha jiang mian’ – made  by frying ground pork and mixing it with noodles and the yellow bean sauce. It is also used in Vietnamese cooking and stir fries, often called 'ground bean sauce', or yellow soy bean sauce.

As well as using the crushed yellow bean sauce in zha jiang mian, it’s also delicious in red braised dishes. Also try mixing a little of the crushed yellow bean sauce with little rice wine vinegar and soy for stir frying meat and vegetables.

Ingredients: Salted soyabean (soybean (25%), wheat flour, salt, water) sugar, soy sauce ( water, soyabean, salt, wheat flour), salt, colour: E150a. Contains wheat, gluten and soya. Produced in a factory that contains sesame. Please note that depending on availability, brand may differ from that shown in the photograph.
