  1. it was great on noodles - put some shredded cabbage on top for crunch.
  2. wow I just used kikkoman's black bean sauce with garlic in place of brown bean paste (i can't get that anywhere nearby) - ignorance isn't always bliss it was wayyy too sweet but I cut it with natural peanut butter, tastes ok now

    Barbara Tropp

    She had an amazing passion for chinese cooking, and although it was unconventional to be who she was, her enthusiasm made it work. She definitely followed her own drummer that said, some of her recipes were daunting and complicated, for me anyway but her szechuan chili peanut sauce is amazing

    Chinese Eats at Home (Part 3)

    well I made the dish - it came out ok cooked wise but the flavor was a bit bland-I bet the sriracha sauce made the difference I threw some brown sauce in it and a spoon of blackbean paste with garlic-which helped some. thanks again

    Chinese Eats at Home (Part 3)

    Thanks all! I will look for the book-I have her Hunan cookbook (from library) and am halfway through reading it-good stuff-everything looks delicious I may do kung pao chicken instead of dry fried not sure yet And I may have a small jar of szechuan peppercorns somewhere-kame maybe btw is sriracha sauce perhaps ok in a pinch? I have to restock my chiligarlic paste. Thanks again!
