In today’s world of global cooking, many recipes call for specialty oils that you can’t typically find at the local grocery store. Sichuan Peppercorn Oil is one of them, at least in my area of town. This lack of access to global spices and oils (without driving 45 minutes into the city and fighting traffic) for a tablespoon of Peppercorn Oil, is what prompted me to create a “make your own” section in my cookbook and on this blog. Although, this particular oil has numerous uses for adding a distinctly wonderful flavor to dishes, one of my favorite ways to incorporate it is in the Chinese Spicy Shaved Beef Bites recipe created by my friend Rachael from China.
You can also use this fragrant oil in stir-frys, sautees, dipping sauces, or anywhere you’d like to add a little zing to your meal. The sky’s the limit. Enjoy!
