An excellent recipe! I used to calculator and cut it down to 4 servings. I did blanch the beans (4 minutes in boiling water then plunge them into ice water to stop the cooking) so they were cooked yet still crunchy. This way, I just had to warm them up once they got into the wok and I didn't have to worry about actually cooking them and scorching the garlic and ginger in the meantime.If you do blanch them first, make sure you roll them around in a towel and get them as dry as possible - otherwise they will spatter and spit once you add them to the wok with the hot oil.
I didn't have the black bean sauce so I added probably close to 1/4 c of soy sauce instead. I did add salt as well. It was kind of strange tasting them while cooking. To me, they didn't have much taste but once they got to the table, they were bursting with flavor! The famly gobbled them up and declared them delicious! That is good enough for me!
