Beef Chow Mein with Black Bean Sauce by Sam the Cooking Guy

Sam the Cooking Guy is by far my favorite television cooking show host. If you've never seen it, you need to. The show is called Just Cook This with Sam the Cooking Guy, it's on FIT TV and Discovery Health. If you don't have those channels just Youtube: Sam the Cooking Guy. He's just an ordinary dude who films his show out of his own home. Sam frets on cooking for yourself and eating out less, which I totally agree with. Cooking at home is cheaper and better for you. Sam is an inspiration through his cooking and hilarious personality. Anyway, this is a recipe from Sam and it's a breeze to put together and tastes great. Check out his manifesto.

The main flavor in this dish comes from garlic black bean sauce, which I found in the Asian section at Dillons. It's good stuff, I recommend picking some up if you like Asian cooking.

It took less than 10 minutes to cook this.

  1. The Beef Chow Mein looks great. I can't wait to try it. I think we may make it this weekend, I let you know how it turns out.

  2. So there's this stuff here in Africa that is a huge stable of their diet. It's called maize meal, and is very simular to malt-o-meal or porrige. You have to try it--if you can find it--I have fallen in love with it.

  3. Zach! What a cool blog. The receipes sound and look great (good photography). We'll have to try some of them. Your mom told my wife, Beth, about the blog site. I'll peek in now and then...right now I feel the need to go eat!
