 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      tablespoon    fermented black beans, -- rinsed and drained
    1      tablespoon    garlic minced
      1/2  teaspoon      fresh minced ginger
    1      tablespoon    vegetable oil
      1/2  pound         lean ground pork
      1/4  cup           chicken stock
    1      pound         Chinese green beans, -- trimmed & blanched
    2      tablespoons   soy sauce
    2      tablespoons   water
    2      teaspoons     cornstarch
 
 In a small bowl, mash the black beans into the garlic and ginger. In a large wok
or saute pan heat
 the oil and cook the pork, stirring occasionally until all the pink is
gone--about 10 minutes. Then add
 the mashed fermented beans and stock, mix together and cook for 2 minutes. Add
the green beans,
 mix together and cook for 3 more minutes. Meanwhile, in a bowl mix together the
soy sauce, 2
 tablespoons of water and cornstarch until they form a paste. While stirring pour
the cornstarch
 mixture into the liquid in the bottom of the wok. The liquid will thicken and as
you toss the wok,
 coating the beans. Taste and re-season with salt and pepper if needed
