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.
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 particular oil are the numerous uses for adding a distinctly wonderful peppercorn flavor to dishes. One of my favorite ways to incorporate it is in my Chinese Spicy Shaved Beef Bites recipe created by my friend Rachel 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. 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!
