Difficulty: cutting (elementary)
Cooking time: 10-30 minutes
Ingredients: 300g wet soybean
Seasonings: 20g berry sugar; 5 tbsp of soy sauce; 2 anises; 2g salt
1. Select the dry soybeans, throw off the soybeans of poor quality and the impurities. Soak the dry soybeans in clean water for 8 hours. (I soaked them before I went to work in the morning, so I could start when I returned in the afternoon.)
2. Clean soaked soybeans for use. Put the soybeans in a frying pan, add some water whose height is equal to that of the soybeans.
3. Add berry sugar, soy sauce and anises. Boil over strong heat and then shift to gentle heat.
4. Stew the soybeans on gentle heat until it is well-done. Add salt. You should stay beside the frying pan and stir the soybeans for many times in case the soybeans stick to the pan.
5. Stir fry soybeans evenly. Turn off the heat and take out the dish.
The longer the soybeans are soaked, the more easily they are boiled well. But they needn’t be soaked for too long. When the mixture are thickened over strong heat, stir them often in case the soybeans stick to the pan.
