  1. We are making our way through the five spice recipes. This one was tricky as there is nothing I could find in Asian markets called brown bean sauce. Found a ground bean sauce (brown in color) made from fermented soybeans with sugar and used that. It may not be the original recipe but it was delish. If anyone can confirm or refute that ground bean sauce is brown bean sauce I would be grateful. There are other recipes that call for this sauce that I would also like to try. Thanks!
