4.0 out of 5 stars good sauce, September 7, 2011
This review is from: Lee Kum Kee Black Bean Garlic Sauce - 8 oz. (Grocery)
This sauce is salty. Before you use the sauce, you need to TRY IT YOURSELF. Then when you use it, you are only suppose to use it in SMALL quantities as in SMALL spoonfuls. Add a little bit first, taste the dish and then add more. This isn't a type of sauce that you can just slather on to something. When you stir fry with it, lets say, black bean chicken, add a little bit, taste and then add more.

DO NOT ADD ANY ADDITIONAL SOY SAUCE to your dish. Black bean sauce is pretty much black beans, salt, soy sauce and oyster sauce. You do not need to add any additional salt or soy sauce.

I bought this sauce because if I'm short on time and I don't have time to soak black beans, this is a good substitute.

Just a warning, sampling the sauce itself is essential, but it is so salty that it may make you gag. However, it is delicious when used in CORRECT quanitities and spread over meat.

Let me remphasize, SMALL QUANTITIES.

umm, the ingredients in this don't include oyster sauce (which, in this case, could only make it better). GOOD black bean sauce does not have ANY soy sauce and it sure as heck doesn't have processed garlic, wine, water and corn starch.

This stuff is gross. Go to your nearest asian food market and look for the stuff with only black beans, soy oil and maybe sugar and/or lactic acid....pretty sure you'll change your mind about what's "good".

This product is condensed, and VERY good. Incredible for a simple stir fry, etc

There are many versions of this sauce. If this isn't your favorite, that's fine, but saying it's gross is simply your opinion in this case and very subjective. Lot's of folks LOVE this easy to use version.
