I’m always on the lookout for new ingredients at my local Asian market. The market started carrying a new fermented bean curd in chili oil made by Laoganma. So I bought it, adding to my already full pantry of Chinese ingredients, and made this chicken and long bean dish with it. I also made the dish with a good amount of sauce, using the Shiitake mushroom rehydration liquid. The chili oil is not very hot, at least in my opinion, but it does add another flavor to fermented bean curd and the dish.
