Let’s just begin by saying I am seriously putting up my hands to say this Sichuan Beef has to be one of the tastiest meals I have ever tasted!
Two of the funniest things about that are, firstly I am not a huge “steak” consumer because I am not exactly the biggest fan of beef. So for me to rate this so highly is just a huge surprise to me.
The second reason I find this a funny moment of blogging a recipe is the fact that I actually wrote this recipe more than 12 months ago, without any testing just a simple style sauce that I thought would work with some thin slivers of beef and vegetables. I seriously cannot believe that I have been sitting on this recipe all this time and it tastes so amazeballs!
Sichuan Beef Origin
Sichuan cuisine, Szechwan cuisine, or Szechuan cuisine originates from the Sichuan Province in China. It is basically hot fiery pungent and bold flavours including ingredients like garlic and chilli. This Sichuan Beef gets the hit of chilli and spice from fresh chilli, sriracha, white pepper and a wee bit of garlic. The use of butter and a mild fusion of nut butter, sesame oil, five spice and tamari help create the umaminess of hoisin or oyster sauce in this recipe.
How good can Sichuan Beef be?
Today I made this Sichuan beef recipe when a friend and fellow keto follower popped around for a quick bite on a busy day. Seeing her take her first mouthful, then groan, close her eyes and drop her shoulders instantly made me break out my fork to test this most photogenic dish. I fell in love! Not with Kris but with the plateful of food.
Now I am kind of in trouble as Dave is home and there is none left for him. haha! Oh well I do have some very delicious soup in the fridge for dinner tonight.
I would totally love to hear what you think of this Sichuan beef recipe. All the ingredients are easy to source and this was cooked with no marinating or fancy cooking methods. It is just quick nourishing and bloody delicious!
