I am making a small pan of wet burritos, Steve K's chili lime sweet potatoes, using just one pretty good size 'tater, cut in slices, not cubes, so they look more like a scalloped potato dish and spiffed up pinto beans. I put beans in the burritos too.

Hah! I was just thinking of those potatoes while in the grocery store the other day, Whiska. Tis the season for yams.

Katy, what does black beans and beef consist of? Or the black beans is the sauce?
I'm not big on stir-fries, but that's because my repertoire for sauces is nil.

I'm going to play with soft boiling eggs in the microwave and serve on toast.

I just bought a sachet of black bean sauce to throw onto my stir fry Pac. It's made with fermented soya beans and soy sauce. Quite salty, but not hot. The fillet beef is sliced thinly and very quickly fried (much as you would do for a stroganoff), then removed from the pan. Then you quickly stir fry your vegetables. Add the sauce and the beef back into the pan to warm through and then serve with egg noodles or rice. Very quick and tasty!

I wonder if we have those sachets here... Thanks. I need to look into this.
I love everything about stir-frying except coming up with a sauce that isn't simply soy, cornstarch, fish sauce, sesame oil... the usual ingredients i have no idea what I'm doing with, lol.

If you have a Chinese section in your local store, I am sure they will do a selection of stir fry sauces and Black Bean is a pretty common one. Let me know what you think if you try it!
