Onion bell pepper ham spaghetti stir-fry, a recipe inspired by several other recipes.  One is the stir-fried ham spaghettionion pepper ham scrambled eggs and a traditional Chinese recipe which is my mom's favorite, too, onion pepper stir-fried noodles with black bean sauce.

But wait...there is no black bean sauce here in this recipe.

Onion Bell Pepper Ham Spaghetti Stir-Fry


I used sriracha sauce and the combination of other ingredients to make it tastes close enough like the black bean sauce. 

I know you are going to ask me, "What is Chinese black bean sauce?  Why didn't you add it in this stir-fry recipe?"  Chinese black bean sauce is made of fermented beans which gives it a salty taste.  Chinese people love to mix it with hot sauce or red pepper flakes to give an edge of the sauce.

You can add it into different dishes.  The flavor goes very well with almost all ingredients, from vegetarian, poultry to seafood.

I love the flavor, but not the texture of the sauce which is the reason why I skip this sauce from this recipe.  I guess the reason why I don't like the texture because the beans are all intact.  A couple years ago, I was in an American supermarket.  That was the first time I saw the Chinese pureed black bean sauce.  I love both its texture and taste for that one. So, if you love to take on a food challenge, add black bean sauce into this spaghetti stir-fry dish.

However, if you are reserved to take a food adventure, you still want to try out this onion bell pepper ham spaghetti stir-fry recipe because there is no Chinese black bean sauce in it.  It is super tasty and delicious.

If there is any ham leftover, this is a perfect recipe to use it up.  Otherwise, get ham steak and cut the meat into stripes.

This ebook will teach you to cook authentic Chinese food in a healthy way. It will also show you how to get the beautiful colors, texture and taste you get from your favorite Chinese restaurants.
