Ingredients
  • 150 gr ground Beef/Pork, 2 tsp minced Garlic
  • 400 gr firm Tofu/Soft block tofu-2 cm diced
  • 350 ml Chicken stock+2 tbsp Soy sauce-mixed
  • 5 tsp Pixian Chili bean paste (Douban jiang)
  • 2 tsp Fermented black soybeans (Dou-chi) *
  • 2 tsp Shaoxing wine **, 2 tsp minced Ginger
  • 2 tsp Chili flakes, enough hot Water & Salt
  • 2 tsp Sesame oil, 3 Green onions-sliced
  • 1½ tsp Cornstarch+6 tsp Water-mixed
  • 1 tsp roasted Sichuan pepper-grind
  • 6 tbsp Peanut/Vegetable/Corn oil

Directions
  • Soak diced tofu in hot salted water for 10-15 minutes; set aside. Meanwhile, combine the chili bean paste, fermented black beans, chili flakes, 1 tsp of each garlic & ginger. Set aside. Mix the meat with Shaoxing wine; set aside.
  • Heat a wok/heavy skillet over high heat. Add 1 tbsp of oil & swirling to coat. Heat until it just begins to smoke. Stir in the meat, breaking up lumps. Add 1 tsp of each garlic & ginger; stir-fry over moderate heat until fragrant (~ 2 minutes). Keep stirring until the meat is cooked through & starting to brown. Remove the beef and set aside.
  • Heat the remaining oil in a preheated wok/skillet. Put in the chili bean paste mixture. Keep stirring until it fragrant. Pour in the chicken stock mixture; bring it to a boil. Put the meat & half portion of sliced green onions into the wok. Cook until the flavor blended.
  • Drain tofu & then put it into the wok. Simmer for few minutes; stirring gently. Pour the cornstarch mixture, a little at a time, and cook until the liquid thickens. Turn off the heat; stir in sesame oil.
  • Transfer to a big bowl. Sprinkle sichuan pepper & remaining sliced green onions on top.
  • * Dou-chi substitute: Salty soy bean paste; use the beans only (the taste will be slightly different).
  • ** Shaoxing wine substitute: Brandy/Dry sherry/Mirin. For those who don’t consume alcohol: try non-alcohol Mirin or make your own mixture. To make it yourself, combine 1 tsp of soy sauce, 1 tsp of lime/lemon juice & 1 cm ginger-grated. Stir & press the ginger with the back of your spoon while you mix it with other ingredients. Discard ginger & use the mixture.
