Soy sauce beans

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Soybeans
8 tablespoons Soy sauce (yes, 8 tablespoons -- that's 1/2 cup)
2 tablespoons Sugar
5 cups Water

I found this recipe for Baked Soybeans in an old Chinese cookbook, _How to Cook and Eat in Chinese_ by Buwei Yang Chao, and I thought some of you might like it. It's kind of salty, but I'm sure you can fiddle with the ingredients, and/or just eat a little bit of it at one time. It keeps beautifully.

Soak beans in lukewarm water overnight and pour off water. Then boil the beans with the sauce, sugar, and 5 cups of (cold) water over brisk fire.

When it boils, turn down to simmering fire and boil 3 hours, turning over a little every half hour until all liquid is absorbed. Add half cup hot water if it dries before end of 3 hours.

Transfer beans to baking tray and bake at 250 degree F low fire, turning over every half hour. Bake one hour if you plan to eat them soon; 1½ hours if you plan to keep them longer in an airtight jar.
