In today’s world of global cooking, many recipes call for specialty oils that aren’t readily available in most grocery stores. Sichuan Peppercorn Oil is one of those elusive ingredients that can be hard to find.
In today’s world of global cooking, many recipes call for specialty ingredients and oils that can be hard to find in local grocery stores. Sichuan Peppercorn Oil is one of those elusive ingredients that can be hard to find but is worth having in your pantry. This Chinese oil gives just the right amount of heat to stir-fries, sauces, dressings, and more.
The challenge of finding global spices and seasonings without the hassle of hunting for the nearest specialty store for a tablespoon of Peppercorn Oil is what prompted me to create a “DIY“ section on my blog and in my cookbook.
What I love about this oil are the many uses for adding a distinctly wonderful aroma to a dish. One of my favorite ways to incorporate Sichuan peppercorn oil is in the Spicy Sichuan Beef recipe found in my cookbook, It Begins at the Table.
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. It’s a quick and easy oil to make and keeps perfectly in your cabinet for months. That is of course if it lasts that long!
