    Oh I so need to try this. I have been wanting to add sir fries to our weekly menu but I’ve not had much success with the sauces. Usually they are too sweet for my hubby and my son is just starting to appreciate Chinese food. I’m trying this for sure. I’ve not tried the black bean sauce yet. Can’t wait to try it.
