You can look for black bean sauce, thick medium soy sauce and Sambal Oelek in the Asian section of your grocery store or in any Asian grocery store.
I try to use baby green beans whenever I can find them because they are so sweet, crisp and tender! In the U.S, if you happen to live close to a Trader Joes or Costco, you will find them.
I prefer the shitake mushroom seasoning shown below, which you can find in most Asian grocery stores.
